    No, it's a proprietary format.

    I couldn't even get it play animated png, which is open source, that's really is the only hope.

    Not sure what you mean. I can view an attached .gif file in the gmail app. I can also save it and view it with the stock Gallery app.

    He probably mean animated gif. I'm surprised native gallery app doesn't support animated png though.

    I emailed myself a .gif file and it displayed in gmail. I also chose to save it in the download app/folder and then opend it from there choosing the gallery as the app to open it.

    Use photos.
