Instagram has been allowing users to respond to Stories with a GIF for some time now. It will now be expanding the feature to its comment section.
Some Instagram users will notice that they’re now able to use a GIF in their comment on a photo or video within the main feed.
While Instagram hasn’t formally announced the feature, a few users noticed a GIF button in the space they’d typically type out their comments in text form.
Clicking on the button will bring up some sample GIFs, along with a search bar to look for specific ones.
Similar to Stories or even iMessage, the GIFs will be sourced from GIPHY, giving users an ample library of content to pick from.
It’s still unknown when Instagram will roll out the feature to a wider audience or what countries it’ll be made unavailable first.
