Google adds to the Gboard keyboard for Android and iOS a feature that will surely be appreciated by ordinary people to "color" their discussions using animated gifs
Placed in an easily visible location, the new GIF self-tapping button lets you quickly create and send animated GIFs using the front or main camera of your mobile phone
We have a choice between two playback modes: Loop and Fast-Forward. The first is the traditional mode of animated GIFs where a clip lasting up to 3 seconds is played back continuously. Fast-Forward mode allows you to shoot for up to 1 minute, the resulting clip being then compressed into a high-speed playback sequence.
