    Hello, I am using Android Messages by Google and the GBoard keyboard to be able to send GIF's via text message. It has been working great until a few days ago.

    I recently noticed that the GIF's started appearing much smaller in the thread with the other messages than in the past and also compared to other GIF's I received from others. If you click on the GIF, it brings it up to the actual size of the GIF as it normally would, so I know the GIF has sent properly. Has anybody else seen this?

    I am using Samsung Galaxy S6 with Verizon on Android 7 and the latest software.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is also happening to me! The quality of the gif is also different than before. Let me know if you figure this out before I do.

    Has anyone found a solution to this? It's seriously so annoying.

    I've been having this issue ever since I upgraded to Android 8.0. Very frustrating and this is the only thread I've found that discusses it.

    Just started having the same issue. Was working fine on my S7 edge running 7.0 but started as soon as I got my Note8 on 7.1.1
    Super annoying! Cannot find a fix.

    The only way I found to fix this was to install Textra, go to settings, then mms, then change the "Carrier Send Limit" to 2000 (2MB) and set the MMS Behavior to "Legacy" working fine now.
