Users can create their own clips or reaction selfies by going to the GIF section on the keyboard and selecting the "My GIFs" tab.

The Android version of Gboard now lets users create custom GIFs, just like on iOS. All you need to do is open the Google Play Store, tap on the hamburger menu icon, click on my apps & games, and look for Gboard under Updates pending. And, if the GIFs that Google presents to you aren't enough, then it's now possible for you to create your own GIFs and send it to your friends.

To use the Make a GIF feature, tap on the G or Emoji symbol, and then tap on the GIFs tab.

Making the GIF couldn't be easier. Your creation will be kept in the My GIFS tab for future use.

The latest beta version of Gboard is rolling out now, carrying a feature that's always been in development for the Android version: the ability to create custom GIFs. Once you record up to 3 seconds worth of material, you have a choice to add several filters including question marks, breaking news, a slamming door and more.

That said, this GIF creation tool isn't available for everyone right now, and has reportedly popped up only on Pixel devices.

Google has also added an all-new sticker gallery which does share some of its aspects with the preexisting service called Allo.

The feature already launched on iOS earlier this year, but is now finally beginning on its journey to the public on Android with beta version 7.2.
