Animated GIFs from GIPHY

Zulip integrates with GIPHY, allowing you to conveniently search for animated GIFs and include them in your messages.

Be thoughtful when using this feature! Animated GIFs can be fun, but they can also distract from the content of a conversation.

  1. First, open the compose box.
  2. Click the GIPHY logo at the bottom of the compose box. This opens the GIPHY search tool.
  3. Use the search tool to find a GIF you'd like to use.
  4. Click on an image to insert a link to the GIF in the compose box.
  5. Send the message. Zulip will display the GIF like any other linked image.

You can preview the message before sending to see what the message will look like.

Restrict maximum rating of GIFs retrieved from GIPHY

This feature is only available to organization owners and administrators.

By default, the GIPHY integration is configured to only retrieve GIFs that GIPHY categorizes as rated G (General audience). You can change this configure or disable GIPHY integration entirely:

  1. From your desktop, click on the gear () in the upper right corner.

  2. Select Manage organization.

  3. On the left, click Organization settings.

  4. Under Other settings, select a rating from Maximum rating of GIFs.

  5. Click Save changes.
