The social network has added the option of creating GIFs from the application camera, and users will be able to use all available filters and frames.
Facebook knows its users have a weakness for GIFs and is putting all its effort into creating new tools to enhance its use. Last June, the social network enabled the option to add Gifs in the comments and, from now on, the camera will have the option to create them. Users will be able to record their own animated images without having to go to those already created by GIPHY.
GIFs created through the Facebook camera last a few seconds and you can use all the effects and frames of the application to post it to Facebook stories, in the profile or save it to the device. To access the new feature, users must enter inside the camera, the icon in the upper left, and swipe to the right to start creating their own GIFs.
The option has been announced this Friday, July 14 and, so far, is not available on all phones, suggesting that it could be enabled gradually for all operating systems and users.
Since last June, Facebook increased the interaction in the comments adding the option of integrating GIFs without having to look for them outside the social network. GIPHY animated images are available directly to users, who can add them directly from their profile.
The new tool was announced on the occasion of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of GIFs, one of the most important and representative formats of internet history.
