Instagram Send GIF Animations via Messenger

Instagram now also offers the possibility to send GIF animations via Messenger. Using GIF´s was previously only possible in Stories.

If you as well as we haven't discovered the function yet, then you should take a look at the Instagram messenger. Here you can find a button with "GIF" after tapping the editor line.

If you select this button, a search bar opens with which you can now search the online service "GIPHY". Enter a search term and select the GIF image.

This will be sent immediately to your contact. This will look like this: A cool function, because you can easily send your Instagram friends funny messages, for example to express your mood at the moment.

Did you already know the function? What is your favorite GIG animation in Instagram? Share it with us in the comments!
