​Facebook Messenger now supports sending GIFs via Gboard

Facebook Messenger added native support for GIF search last year, and now it’s adding further support for GIFs on Android by taking advantage of Gboard’s built-in search feature…
In case you missed it, Google’s Gboard keyboard for Android recently, and quietly, expanded support for GIFs outside of Android Nougat, allowing for users on almost any OS version to quickly search for GIFs via the keyboard.
Android Police points out that Messenger typically pulls GIFs only via Tenor, where Gboard will find GIFs from a variety of sources including Giphy, Imgur, and others.
