This little-known hack makes making .gifs easy AF.

WhatsApp have a nifty, little-known feature that allows you to turn any short video into a .gif. Despite the function being available since 2017, lots of people haven't heard of it..Ever taken a short video and wished you could make it a .gif? This is the trick for you.

How to turn videos into .gifs using WhatsApp

1. Choose your video file. Only videos shorter than six seconds can be turned into .gifs on WhatsApp, so keep it brief

2. Toggle the tab that appears in the right hand corner so the box reading "GIF" is whited out, and the box with the video icon has a blue background

3. Hit send and enjoy!

4. Once you've sent your .gif you can then save it down in that format as you would with any other image file in your WhatsApp chat.
