Snapchat Now Supports Animated GIFs from GIPHY

The new GIF stickers from Giphy's library is rolling out to Snapchat's Android and iOS apps. Next, they should select the sticker icon, it's the one that looks like a sticky note with one corner peeling up. Numerous new features, the petition argues, are "useless or defeats the original purposes Snapchat has had for the past years".

The Giphy addition appears to be Snap's move to help Snapchat keep pace with Instagram.

"The new Friends page will adapt to you and get smarter over time, reflecting who you're most likely to be Snapping with at that moment". To add animated stickers in Snapchat, you need to update the app to the latest version.

While other new features include tabs to both the friends and the discovery screens within the app so that user can view the active story more efficiently and easily. These stickers also work with video snaps.

In the post, Snapchat said it will soon roll out tabs on iOS in the app's Friends and Discover sections to make it easier for users to find Stories, which are photos and videos shared by users that disappear after 24 hours. This particular feature could be in response to complaints about Snapchat's recent redesign.


However, some Snapchat users were exhausted of seeing stories and Snaps with the temperature on them.

In an official response on Change.org, where user Nic Rumsey posted a petition called "Remove the new Snapchat Update", the Snapchat team wrote that they "completely understand the new Snapchat has felt uncomfortable for many".

Snap Inc. has responded to a widely-signed petition demanding it roll-back an unpopular redesign of its Snapchat mobile apps for iPhone and Android.

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel recently reiterated the company's commitment to stick with the new design in an appearance at a Goldman Sachs investor event, where he told critics that they were proving the company right.
