Google email service Gmail recently released its latest software update that allows Android users to add Graphic Interchanged Format (GIF) images to an email.
Dailysocial.id reported emails containing GIFs were previously available via third-party apps, but users of Gmail 7.3 would now be able to find GIFs directly via Google’s keyboard Gboard.
This new feature works similar to the GIF feature in Google Voice and Facebook Messenger, in which users only need to select the GIF tab after clicking the emoji icon. After choosing the preferred GIF from a plethora of GIF files, including the most popular and the newest, the animated image will be automatically inserted in the email’s body.
In addition to the GIF feature, Gmail 7.3 has also added several other features, including a video preview for email, though currently only available for desktop. (jes/kes)
