Gboard v7.2 adds ability to make your own GIF with the camera
Two decades ago one SMS means a lot to us. But after a decade texts are falling short to express our emotions. That’s when emojis came to take place. Eventually, the stickers and GIFs are in trends. GIFs are the set of images commonly created from a short video clip. Android doesn’t come with any GIF creator. But with the latest beta update to Gboard, we can create GIFs anywhere with the help of our camera. All you need to do is open the GIF section, and you can make your own custom GIF with the camera.
Regarding GIFs Update
This is not all of sudden —google was planning for a long time we can see it in a pair of APK teardowns. Now, this feature has arrived, and work as we expected. After the update, you can just go to the GIF interface on the keyboard, tap on “my gifs” tab. Then, tap on “Make a Gif”, when you try for the first time Gboard asks for camera permission. You will get your camera interface with some wacky GIF filters from google. Now shoot some clips. You will find your GIFs in the My GIFs tab for later use as well. This feature is limited to select devices right now, Google Pixel is one of them.
Gboard now also has a new sticker gallery same as Allo, an instant messaging app like WhatsApp. After the unofficial death of Allo, Google ported the emojis to Gboard. It even has the blobmoji. Search for the suitable emoji packs and add it to Gboard.
Additionally, Google dropped support for legacy systems such as KitKat and earlier. This points to the direction for cutting support for other apps as well. Wait for Google to push the update or download it now from the Gboard update on APK mirror.
