If you haven t been running the WhatsApp Messenger beta on your phone, you might not know that you ve been missing out on the wide world of GIFs.
The feature's been available since November for iOS users and in beta testing for several months on Android, but the FaceBook-owned company has just unlocked the feature for everyone in its latest Play Store update.
It s easy to use.
Simply click on the familiar paperclip icon you use to attach photos and videos and you ll see a GIFS section.
Inside you ll find any short animations you ve saved to your camera roll, and you need only select one to send it to a friend.
On the receiving end, GIFs you get will be adorned with a badge that needs to be tapped before it starts playing—a good feature for those of us with GIF-happy friends.
