    Default Texting gif's help! (1mb file size limit, need solutions)

    Hey guys, I just came over to android from iphone,
    With iphone I was enjoying sending my friends gifs as responses, however with android there is a 1mb file limit.

    I wanted to know what you guys think the best solution is,
    so far, I have tried finding a way to resize the gifs, that doesnt seem easy though,
    or somehow changing the file limit,
    anyone have ideas? or know an easy way?

    There is no way to change the file size limit as far as I know. iPhones compress their files a lot more to allow for texting.
    You can try an app that isn't limited by MMS protocols. Like Hangouts

    MMS has three layers of size limitation, which boils down to the lesser of all 3 is the limit: carrier, device and app. Generally, unless you want to hack your device for this specific purpose, it's recommended simply to use a more appropriate tool, such as Hangouts, G+, Google Drive, Dropbox, E-Mail, Facebook Messenger, etc, etc depending on what common apps you share. Many of those kinds of apps you to share only with people who have a specific link to your picture without requiring a login and also allow full size viewing of the subject.
