Earlier, only images used to get views on Facebook. This claim was supported by stats and infographics about why images get more attention on the social media sites than plain content or videos. But something changed recently. We can say, a combination of images and videos came to the site and people instantly fell in love with these short-span funny images-in-action, better known as GIF from Giphy.
Giphy now has an official Android app where you can share GIFs on apps of your choice. The app is now available in the PlayStore. Giphy was launched for iOS back in October. Only Android users could not use these moving images out of the Messenger app. By downloading the app, you will be able to search, explore, text, share, save or react using animated stickers. Instant messaging to friends and family is going to be more fun now.
On the Google PlayStore, the Giphy for Android app description reads,
“GIPHY for Android is the fastest, simplest way to search and share GIFs across all of your favorite social channels.
Faster than ever, but still wicked easy. Now with an Auto-Play on/off switch for those annoying moments spent on a poor connection to the interwebs!”
On which platforms can you share GIFs by downloading Giphy for Android? Here are the social media sites where you can share these animated images:
- Facebook Messenger
- In the email
