Not one for making a big fuss, WhatsApp quietly added a feature that allows people to send gifs to each other.
And people are very happy about it.
Users can go to attach a photo to a message, and choose from an array of gifs.
And, for some, it's been life-changing:
I have just been made aware that Whatsapp now allows gifs so I can already tell 2017 is going to be my year. — James Besanvalle (@James Besanvalle)

Being able to send gifs on whatsapp is one of the best things to ever happen to me — pink is my power color (@pink is my power color)
Although, some people have already taken it a bit too far:
My dad just discovered the GIFs on WhatsApp is flooding me and my sister with them.😂 — Samkelo (@Samkelo)
So, my mum discovered, that she can send .gifs thru WhatsApp.
Im already done with 2017. — christian (@christian)
Remember people: Gif responsibly.
And never get into an argument about whether it's pronounced gif or jif.
