Apparently, everyone’s comment section on Instagram was looking a little bland, because the social media platform just announced a fun new feature, GIF comments! The feature has been available on Facebook for years, and now you can finally reply or comment on posts with GIFs on Instagram too.
Say goodbye to plain old text and emojis, here’s how to reply with a GIF on Instagram:
- Make sure you have the latest version of the app installed.
- Once you have updated your Instagram app, get to a post’s comment box. On there, the new UI will show you a ‘GIF’ option. When pressed, you will be presented with some predefined GIFs and a search bar.
- In the search bar, you can type a keyword to find a particular GIF. Or, you can just simply tap on the suggested GIFs.
It’s as simple as that! Enjoy showering your friends and family with GIF love.
