While the users could use the Gboard keyboard in the mail app previously as well, the option to add the animated GIFs was not available on Android. Now the users could opt to make their emails as lively as they want by adding the animated GIFs to their messages. More recently, Gmail has introduced the ability to request and send money via the Gmail’s Email Attachment.
The latest update for the Gmail for Android (v.7.3.13) is already available for download on the Google Play, though it is rolling out gradually so would take some time to reach all the regions. The APK file is available for the sideloading via APK Mirror.
To add the GIFs to emails, the users just need to head to the emoji section on the Gboard keyboard while inside the Gmail and composing a new message.
