YouTube is testing a new GIF-making tool on selected channels, that will let viewers make shareable clips their favourite moments.
Making animated GIFs usually requires using other websites or software which can sometimes be a tedious process.
The new tool lets six-second GIFs be made with ease, by clicking the share icon on enabled videos. Text can even be added to the top and bottom.
The tool is being tested on a limited number of videos and is not yet available to all creators, but it’s hoped it will soon roll out across the platform to allow easier GIFing.
