How to Make Video to GIF on Android

The Graphics Interchange Format or commonly referred to most people as GIF is a highly compressed file format that is used worldwide. GIFs appear like compressed videos that loop after some seconds. GIFs are more expressive than photos and require less viewing time than videos. Many people use GIFs on social media platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram.

There are so many GIFs on the internet today but not so many people know how they are created. There are several apps for Android devices that can easily convert your videos into GIFs. You can either convert the videos in your gallery or just record videos and are converted instantly to GIFs. This piece looks at how you can use these apps to convert your videos into GIFs.
