Google’s Gboard has a new update

Instagram Stories are about to get a lot funnier and more entertaining. And now, Google has quietly updated the Gboard app for iOS to add additional support for GIFs, by adding a feature that allows you to record your own GIFs. 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.

Integration with GIPHY likely sped things along for the new feature.

For the people who can't post enough Stories to Instagram, the app is adding GIF stickers for usage on your photos and videos that go directly into Stories.

Adding it to Stories is pretty simple.

Starting Tuesday, you'll be able to add GIFs to your Instagram story.

With its placement, the GIF-making button allows users to record clips from both, front and back cameras. All users have to do is drag the one they choose over the story.

Stickers now available include a floating cheeseburger, insane faces, dog with sunglasses, and a mouth that is licking its lips.

We love the new changes that have come to the Gboard iOS app, because these changes make getting to the GIF tools much easier. While uploading a group photo to Story, it forces to cut few friends out to adjust the size. Any extra room will be filled with a custom colour gradient, and you can always zoom in on the photo to fill the screen'.

Instagram is also introducing another feature in the coming weeks.

Facebook is continuing to look for new ways to entice users away from Snapchat. You can now create the GIFs using the keyboard itself, including using new effects to create animations.
