Interested in making GIFs? Google's Gboard on Android will allow that

"Now, Instagram users can add vibrant, animated GIF stickers to any photo or video and immediately turn any moment into something fun and sharable", a rep for Instagram tells Glamour.

So, we're not getting a ton of groundbreaking new features today, but what Instagram is adding should definitely make the experience better for end users. The update also adds in support with GIPHY, which has a vast library of stickers. On a more wider scale, Instagram is crucial for selling products for businesses.

While the feature was available on the app since September 2017, it was hidden in the pile of emojis on the board. After selecting the add sticker button at the top, there will be a new GIF option. In order for that to work, many Google apps need to be optimized to run on smartphones with less RAM. You can then simply drag the ones you want on to your photos or videos. Then you've probably heard of Google's Gboard, the third-party keyboard that lets you both swipe to spell as well as search the web.

Deepika has also signed a film which will be a biopic on Sapna Didi and will be directed by Vishal Bharadwaj. Look, we announced the date first.

The update also mentions that users will soon be able to add photos and videos "of any size to your story", referring to the aspect ratio rather than file size.

Instagram's GIF stickers will surely become a popular addition to Stories. Horizontal photos or videos uploaded from the camera roll are cropped for a vertical view, but with the new feature user will be able to include the original, horizontal version by pinching it down. You can create two kinds of GIFs using Gboard - looping and fast-forward GIFs - and save them for later if you like them. The extra room will be filled with a custom color relevant to your shared content.
