You may soon be pinning GIFs alongside your favorite meals and workout photos
A new Pinterest feature available to select pinners allows them to play GIFs within the platform, a feature that was previously unavailable
After uploading a GIF to a pinboard, users can play or pause the GIF by clicking a small “play” button in the lower left-hand corner of the image. Previously, when users uploaded GIFs to Pinterest, they appeared as still images unless users followed the link back to the GIF’s original source outside of the platform
A Pinterest spokesperson has confirmed that the company is testing out the new feature.
