Gboard just made it too easy to post insane GIF selfies

Gboard just made it too easy to post insane GIF selfies”

And now, Google has quietly updated the Gboard app for iOS to add additional support for GIFs, by adding a feature that allows you to record your own GIFs. Originally, when the feature launched last September, the GIF creation button was found behind the emoji button on the bottom of the keyboard.

The Verge was the first to spot the change that Google made to its Gboard for iOS app. But now, with the latest update, Google has moved the GIF-making button onto the front of Gboard, next to the word suggestion bar. After selecting one, just record a video and press finish. Perhaps the company wants more users to try it out, so the number of people using it would increase.

Gboard's GIF creation button has two modes, Loop and Fast-Forward. Once the user has finished making the GIF, he can copy and paste the GIF in a particular chat and send it to the contacts selected.

Placing the selfie GIF button in a more accessible place might be godsend for most Gboard users, as sending GIFs has become a popular communication tool in recent years, much like the vast widespread usage of emojis in messages, Twitter posts, and sometimes, even articles. However, users need not be disappointed as an update bringing the feature to Android devices can be expected very soon. It also helps that basically anything that has motion can be turned into a GIF, widening the spectrum of GIFs compatible with whatever a user wants to express. What this does is search through the users' Live Photos. Of course, it also has an option that lets users take short videos that they can then transform into GIFs.

Google's Gboard has a new update.
