Facebook testing GIF creator as camera option in iOS app

You will soon be able to create your own GIFs in Facebook Camera
In addition to recording a GIF, you can also use all of the frames and effects that are available in the Facebook Camera. According to The Next Web the GIFs it creates last only "a few seconds".
As the feature rolls out, users will find the new GIF option when they swipe right to open camera. These Facebook Camera GIFs are sure to draw interest, given how obsessed some people are with the little moving images. But you can only share the resulting GIFs on your Facebook story or as posts on your Facebook page.
The new GIF mode in Facebook Camera was discovered by The Next Web's Director of Social Media Matt Navarra, who reported seeing a new GIF option on the top of Facebook camera.
Facebook frequently tests new features by rolling them out to a subset of its users, so there's no way to know whether or when this might be rolled out more widely.
Speaking of Facebook, GIFs were not something that Facebook took to immediately, as a lot of other social networks were making them important from the get-go.
The GIF option wasn't there on my Android phone and on my friend's iPhone running the latest version of Facebook. Videos are something that you can monetize.
When can you start making GIFs?
Before that, Facebook did not enable the GIF because the company thought adding GIFs to the News Feed would just make things more chaotic. It might just be rolled out eventually once the GIF creator is launched across all platforms.
