Add GIFs to Your Emails With Giphy for Gmail

Are you a fan of GIFs? Are they your favorite way to convey reactions and emotions? Do you include them in all of your internet communications? If so, you’re going to love Giphy for Gmail. This new Chrome extension brings Giphy‘s database of GIFs directly into your Gmail account.

When you open a new email, the Giphy logo will appear directly to the right of the send button as seen above. Clicking on the icon pulls up a small Giphy box which automatically displays several top GIFs. If none of these suit your purpose, you can navigate through a list of reaction types or search through the entire Giphy database.

Once you find the GIF you want, you simply click on it to have it added to your email. The GIF will expand to full size within the email and you can add text before or after it. The GIF will also include a small credit line below that links back to the GIF on Giphy, which makes it easy for both users and email recipients to find the original version of the GIF. If you are a frequent GIF user, this free extension will be a fun addition to your Gmail account. If this doesn’t quite meet your need, try Giphy’s other Chrome browser extension, which makes it easy to search Giphy from within the browser to add GIFs to anything from emails to tweets.
