I think this one of the best feature that google brought in their keyboard app – Gboard. Now Gboard will support GIFs ( Graphics Interchange format). Currently this option is available for iOS and you have to update you app from Apple store.
Through this option you can record your own GIFs. Also, However this option was available in the app since september and it was hidden behind emoji button. With the latest update now you can see this option in front of the Gboard.
Tell us if you use this option, is this helpful for you?
