Those who aren’t using GIFs don’t know how important this feature is for users who spend a lot of time on Twitter, and given the fact that previously only iOS and Android got it, Windows phone owners once again felt left behind.
But starting today, GIF support is available on Windows 10 too, and given the fact that the official client is available on this operating system as a universal app, the same feature is being offered on both PCs and mobile phones.
It goes without saying that this is a neat update for Windows phone users, and this shows that some developers still see an opportunity in coding for Windows, even though there are others who think that Android and iOS deserve all the attention.
Working fine on most Windows 10 Mobile phones
If you are already running the Twitter app on your phone or PC, simply update it from the Store to get the GIF support. All GIFs are provided by Giphy and are part of a very large collection that you can access by simply searching using the box at the top of the library.
At first glance, GIF support is working quite smoothly on Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 Mobile flagships, and we refer here to the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, but on phones with lower specs, there might be a little bit of a performance issue in some cases.
As far as PCs are concerned, everything’s a breeze, so just make sure that you are using the latest version of Twitter to enjoy this feature. The official Twitter app for Windows works not only on Windows 10 Mobile, but also on older devices powered by Windows Phone 8.1. Source: Softpedia
