Google Adds Search Filter To Find Animated GIFs, Because Why Not?

I got this notion that the motion of your ocean meets small craft advisories.

Emma Stone, because yes.

I collect a lot of animated GIFs for later use in forums and y’know, whatever. It’s so much easier to convey emotion with an animated GIF than to type out what you feel. Up until now it hasn’t been easy to find them: you would search Google, click a bunch of links to GIF sites that are filled with pop-ups and hope that’s the one you wanted.

If you use Google’s image search you can click on “Search tools” then choose “Animated” in the “Any type” dropdown. Now you can easily find the right animated GIF at the size you want without having to jump from site to site. I’m seeing reports that this feature is rolling out slowly, so it might not be available for you just yet. Be patient, it will be worth it.
