WhatsApp allows you to create GIFs out of videos. Here's how it works

WhatsApp is no more an app that is used to share important messages but it also a platform where most people like to share their pictures, videos and other media. With billions of users on board, it almost became a necessity to add more and more features every now and then. Some of the features just don't end up hitting the user's eyeballs.

One such feature is the video to GIF converter. GIFs have become a great way to share instant content but people download third-party apps to create these. Now, you can do this on WhatsApp and here's how it works:

How to create GIFs from videos on WhatsApp?

  • Open WhatsApp
  • Tap on the chat in which you want to send the GIF
  • Click on the attachment icon on Android or "+" icon on iPhone
  • Now choose Gallery and look for the video you want to send as GIFs
  • Using the trimming tool above the video, trim the video to 15 seconds or less
  • Tap on the option to switch from video to GIF on the top right corner
  • Now just hit the send icon
