The Social messaging giant, WhatsApp has improved a lot since it’s acquisition by Facebook. WhatsApp is no more just a “text” messaging app with a neat interface, it has evolved a lot which has replaced a lot of apps as it offers all new features along with the neat chat app. While most of the features are listed in Changelog provided on Google PlayStore, app developers always keep few features a secret. The reason for this? Well, no ones knows. Today I’m here with another such feature which is somewhat unfamiliar to most of the normal WhatsApp users i.e How to convert videos into GIFs on WhatsApp.
Compared to other messaging apps, WhatsApp was slow to allow its one billion customers to send GIFs to each other. But they knew how to implement it into the WhatsApp without annoying the users who use WhatsApp just because of it’s simplicity. Talking about GIFs, most of the Android apps pull GIFs from Giphy, which is a huge GIFs directory updated by its users. But how to create your own GIFs? Not everyone likes to download videos & there’s some different fun in GIFs. So, if you’re looking for ways to make your newly recorded video into a GIF, let’s get started.
