Rejoice! The Gmail app receives GBoard GIF support
The Gmail Android app is next in line to receive GIF keyboard support, which goes live in the latest update for the app (v. 18.104.22.168698241).
Gboard’s GIF search function has been gaining a lot of traction in the last couple of months, with many apps adding support for animated shenanigans due to popular demand, including WhatsApp and Facebook messenger, but we never would have thought that Gmail would go the same route.
I mean, when was the last time when you wrote an email and thought, “I sure could spice things up with a GIF or two! My business associates will surely appreciate it!” We kid, we kid, there are probably people out there who send their friends emails regularly and would appreciate the new functionality.
GIF support arrives to the Android version of Gmail in the latest update, which should be rolling out on Google Play shortly.
