How To Post A Gif On Slack Mobile

If you are utilizing the Slack mobile application and are curious about how to share a GIF to enhance your conversations and make them more entertaining, you have come to the correct place. GIFs are an excellent way to inject humor or convey your emotions in a unique manner. In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps of posting a GIF on Slack mobile. It is simpler than you may imagine!

Step 1: Open a Conversation

Start by opening the Slack mobile app on your phone. Tap on the channel or the person’s name you wish to send a GIF to, and this will take you into the conversation.

Step 2: Access the GIF Option

Once you’re in a conversation, you’ll see a text box at the bottom of the screen where you usually type your messages. To the right of this text box, you’ll find a small “+” button. Tap on this button to open up more options.

Step 3: Use the GIPHY Integration

Among the options that appear, you should see a “GIF” button, which is powered by GIPHY. If you do not see a “GIF” button, you will need to install the GIPHY app or Slack might not have this integration enabled.

Step 4: Select a GIF

After you tap on the “GIF” button, a search bar will pop up. You can use this bar to search for a specific type of GIF. For example, if you’re feeling happy, you might type “happy” into the search bar to see GIFs that express happiness. Once you’ve found a GIF that you like, simply tap on it to select it.

Step 5: Send Your GIF

With your GIF selected, all you have to do now is tap on the “Send” button. And there you have it – you’ve posted a GIF on Slack mobile!
