Recently, there has been a buzz around a new feature on Instagram – the ability to add animated GIFs in comments. Many people have been curious about how to use this feature, so today I’m here to show you how it works.
Firstly, it’s important to note that this feature may or may not be available to all users. As we know, Instagram often rolls out new features slowly to the public. To check if you have access to this feature, simply go to your Instagram account.
Once you’re in the comments section, you’ll notice a text field where you can type your comment. Just beside the comment box, after a certain time, an icon representing a gift will appear. This icon is the same GIF icon you see when replying to stories. By clicking on it, you’ll have access to a wide range of animated GIFs from Giphy.
To use a GIF, simply search for the one you want and click on it to send. It’s that easy! Soon, this feature will also be available in the comments section next to the text field.
If you don’t have access to the GIF feature yet, don’t worry. Instagram is gradually rolling it out to all users and countries. One way to ensure you get this feature as soon as possible is to check for updates in your App Store. If you see that the Instagram app has an update available, it means you can update your app to the latest version, which should have the GIF feature.
However, if you still don’t have access to GIFs, you may need to wait until Instagram releases it in your country or to all users. Just like with other features, Instagram sometimes takes time to make them available to everyone. Alternatively, you can try using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to access Instagram from a different country. Sometimes, the feature may be available in other regions before yours.
In conclusion, adding animated GIFs in comments on Instagram is a fun way to express yourself. Whether you’re replying to a story or leaving a comment, GIFs add an extra element of creativity and humor to your interactions. So, keep an eye out for the GIF icon in your comments section, and enjoy expressing yourself in a whole new way on Instagram!
