Snapchat Users Can Now Add Giphy’s Animated GIF Stickers to Their Snaps

A new tabs feature is also coming soon

Users can now add Giphy's animated stickers to their Snaps Snap Inc.

Snap Inc. detailed Snapchat’s two newest features.

First, the company partnered with Giphy to allow Snapchat users to search Giphy’s library for animated GIF stickers they can add to their Snaps.

Snapchat users can access the Giphy library by tapping the sticker icon near the top-right corner of the screen once they’ve taken a photo or video Snap. From there, they can view a list of Giphy stickers, as well as animated stickers created by the Snapchat team. Users can also search for GIFs manually.

The app allows users to add multiple GIFs to a single post, and they can resize and move each GIF around the post as they see fit.

While this Giphy functionality is available now, the second new feature is coming soon. A Snap Inc. spokesperson said tabs will soon be added to Snapchat’s Friends and Discover sections, allowing users to sort through their friends with active stories, group chats and their subscriptions in Discover.

The tabs feature will soon begin rolling out to iOS users, and it will launch on Android at a later date.
