You can now search for and share GIFs directly from the Google app

If you don’t want to search for GIFs using GBoard, or within WhatsApp, you can now use the Google app.

In a news-filled Friday, Google announced that now when users search for images and GIFs within the Google app, they can now tap a “share” option below the image.

“To make it easier to say ‘surprised,’ ‘good morning’ or ‘buenas noches’ with the perfect GIF, Google Images now has a “Share GIFs” section that lets you share GIFs directly into different apps, including Gmail, Hangouts, Android Messages and Whatsapp,” the firm added in a blog post.

“GIFs appear in this section based on how likely they are to be shared, so that you can find a GIF that captures exactly what you want to say.”

The section also scours Google’s Tenor, Google Images, content made by creators, submissions from streaming services and movie studios, and YouTube.

The app’s new Share GIFs section is available on Chrome for Android, and the Google app for iOS and Android from today. It will be made available to third-party browsers in the future.
