GIFs can be added to snaps in the form of stickers.
To use the new feature, users can tap on the sticker icon on the main page, type in the search field, and a new GIF section will reveal various stickers related to the search.
Last month, Instagram rolled out support for GIFs generated from GIPHY, and now, Snapchat has done the same. And earlier this week, Snapchat announced plans to integrate "Tabs" into the app, which should make it easier for users to find the stories they're looking for. A change that was reluctantly welcomed by some users while others started petitions to get the company to change the app back to the way it was prior to the update. To add animated stickers in Snapchat, you need to update the app to the latest version.
Snpachat users who have had the app for years are used to taking a Snap and then swiping through the filters to add the temperature label. The Stickers will move, rotate, and scale with whatever you pinned it to. "Once you receive the update, you'll be able to sort things like Stories, Group Chats, and Subscriptions, allowing you to further customize your own experience on the app".
Meanwhile, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel noted to be stick with his promise to shape Snapchat more convenient for its users and making improvements on new redesign according to the reviews. This is a notable reversal of the typical pattern we've seen of Instagram cloning Snapchat features, but it's a good one for users since GIF stickers for Stories are basically the greatest thing ever invented on social media.
