Instagram and Snapchat Temporarily Remove GIFs in Stories

Posted by @audreylaine, Tue, Mar 13 10:56am

Instagram and Snapchat have decided to halt their integration with Giphy, which allowed users to add animated GIFs to stories. GIF stickers in stories were removed from Instagram and Snapchat after it was found that an offensive GIF could be selected from Giphy’s library.

The two companies’ integration with Giphy will continue to be on hold until such time that Giphy’s team fixes the problem on their end.

Giphy claims the problem has been fixed, though Instagram and Snapchat have yet to reinstate GIF stickers.
