    Default Animated gifs

    Sorry if this has been asked already, but I searched and didn't get a hit.

    Has anyone else had issues with receiving gifs? They only work through chrome for me. Any sent through text or hangouts only have the last frame.

    I actually download and save Gifs from Reddit. They all display perfectly when viewing them through the Google "Photos" app.

    Gifs will always be sent as single frames. you have to email them to send the complete Gif. Also Gifs sent through hangouts would be sent to another person on hangouts and not as an SMS or MMS but as purely data.

    But i may be wrong. i've been wrong once before in my life so it is possible.

    Bump.

    I'm using chrome on moto x. It saves the files as .gif but just displays the actual picture. Doesn't animate or anything when I send thru text. I'm in a group chat and everyone is using an iPhone except me. All of them post gifs.

    How can we fix this

    i have received a few GIF's via MMS and they are all stuck on the last picture. i.e: no animation.
