An experimental YouTube feature, so far only spotted on a single channel, allows users to create 6 second GIFs from any part of a video. Using the feature is quite easy, having only to hit the “Share” button, then select “GIF.”
From here, simply drag the scrubber across the section of the video you want to be turned into a GIF. This could be done for when people make funny faces, someone hits a tree on a swing, or anything else that might be funny.
We hope to see this feature rollout a bit broader in the future, and when it does, you can expect to see many more GIFs across the web.
