The new feature allows you to quickly create and send animated GIFs using the front or main camera of the 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.
Now available in the beta version of the Gboard keyboard for Android devices, the GIF selfie option will be available to all Android users in the coming weeks
