How to make your own GIFs on WhatsApp
Creating GIFs on WhatsApp using your own content is easier than you think. To create a GIF, just open the contact you want to send the GIF to and choose a video. To turn that video into a GIF, you'll need to shorten it. To do this, swipe the edges of the videos until you see the GIF option.
At the top right you can also add emojis, text and even draw on your GIF. If you want to remove something you've added, simply tap the back arrow. To send, simply tap on the green arrow.
