    Just noticed on my Gboard that I now have access to use bitmoji and gif with texting but it isn't working. I keep getting an error that says this text field does not support image insertion from keyboard. I have s8

    Which messaging app are you using?

    Emojis and gifs often require the message be converted from SMS to MMS. MMS any need to be separately turn on for your app/phone/account.

    I have exact same problem with Samsung J3. When you use the bitmoji app, one can pick moji then messages and converts mms allowing you to address/send. But when picking a bitmoji from GBoard, you immediately get the "text field doesn't support image insertion" error. Noting; bitmoji images display ok in gboard, allowing selection of a bitmoji, so GBoard/bitmoji apps interacting ok at some level. Which seems to imply a missing "convert to mms" step upon selection. This convert to mms process happens when doing the process; "bitmoji app, select moji, send to messages app"

    It needs to be a smoother transition. I also use Gboard and it blows that I can access the bitmojis, but cannot use them directly. I have Galaxy Note 8.

    Go to the Play Store and get the Google "Messages" app, it will work then. I had the same issue.
