Lovers of the almighty GIF will be grateful of Twitter’s new GIF Search feature, allowing users to search through a vast library of GIFs for usage in tweets and direct messages. From now on, you will never need to have all of your GIFs downloaded and saved somewhere safe for use at just the right time.
This feature, according to Twitter, will be available to users across all platforms over the coming weeks. To use it, when composing a tweet, a new icon will appears next to the gallery icon. Powered by GIPHY and Riffsy, you can insert any GIF that you can find on their servers. The same goes for Direct Messages, as the same functionality applies for private correspondences, too.
Be on the lookout for this added feature, which should be live soon for everyone.
