WhatsApp for iPhone Finally Supports GIFs, Including Live Photos

Facebook’s popular messaging app WhatsApp for iPhone was updated over the weekend with long-overdue support for animated GIFs.

WhatsApp users can now send and receive their own animated GIFs, or discover and share GIFs from built-in services such as Giphy and Tenor — which one exactly appears to be dependant on your region.

Likewise, videos that are shorter than six seconds and Live Photos can also be sent as GIFs. To send a Live Photo as a GIF, simply 3D Touch the photo after tapping on Attach > Photo/Video Library and choose “Select as GIF.”

WhatsApp is available as a free download on the App Store [Direct Link] for iPhone. The app is now at version 2.16.15.
