Gboard is one of the best, if not the best keyboard for Android. Google has consistently added new features to the keyboard and now, a new feature in its beta version might be the most interesting one. In the latest beta version 0f the Gboard app, users can make their own GIFs from the keyboard itself.

To make a GIF, simply tap on the emoji button on the keyboard. Then click on “Make A GIF” and click on the record button. The GIF can be made from either the front or the rear camera. Users can also add effects before recording. Once the GIF is made, users can either instantly share it, save it or re-do it if any changes are to be made.


We expect this feature to soon make its way to the stable version of Gboard. GIFs or Graphics Interchange Format are already very popular and have become a way of expression on social media. Adding this feature to chats will only intensify the populairty of GIFs and Google would want the stable version users to experience it as well.

If you really want to try out the feature right now, you can always sign up as a beta tester. Once the feature has been rolled out to the stable version, you can end your run as a beta tester and move back to the stable Gboard app. To sign up for the beta test, simply go to Google Play Store and search for Gboard. You can also head straight to the Gboard app listing by clicking here. Once there, scroll to the bottom of the listing and join the beta test. Once enrolled, you will get a notification to update your Gboard app which will have the new “Make A GIF” feature.
