Giphy has introduced a new iOS app, Giphy Keys. This app allows iPhone users to access GIFs without any trouble.
Giphy Keys is a smartphone keyboard that allows iOS users to send GIFs via any app they choose.
Giphy has recently integrated GIFs with twitter. In a blog post, the company said “We put GIFs on Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, Outlook, Tinder, Slack and that’s just naming a few of our partners. Today, we’re putting them under your thumbs, so you can add any GIF to any app on your iPhone.”
GIFS or Graphics Interchange Formats are short animations or video clips that can include text. It is a way through which web users express their emotions in an animated manner. Giphy Keys allow users to send GIFs through text messages and any other application that supports Giphy feature.
How To Use Giphy Keys
Step 1: Download Giphy Keys app for iOS and install it on your iPhone as a keyboard. You will notice a globe icon on the keyboard’s bottom left in any app you choose to run Giphy on. When you press this icon you will see the Giphy Keys interface.
Step 2: To select a GIF you can choose from the Giphy Trending section or search in Giphy.
Step 3: Once you have selected the GIF you want to send, tap on the thumbnail. This will automatically generate a copy of the GIF.
Step 4: In your chat window, tap Paste. Press Send to share the GIF!
You will find the row of icons at the top and the search button on the top left. The icons followed by the search button organize GIFs on the basis of emotions or categories. You can also select your favorite GIFs or search for recently used GIFs.
The app has yet to be launched for android users, for now only iOS users get to enjoy GIFs.
