I was searching yesterday for something to play with on my Android phone in the Google Play store. I found that there are add-ons to Facebook’s Messenger created by Facebook. Most of them were not worthy of any mention, but I did land on the one called Strobe.
You can take up to four photos and combine them to create a GIF that you can then share in Messenger with your friends. Even taking one photo has several animation options just for that.
Its fun to create GIFs with yourself in it because it brings a little uniqueness to the GIF that you do not get when you use someone elses. It just feels different.
So if you want a good time and want your friends to laugh, try Strobe. It also offers the option to save your GIFs outside of Messenger so that you can have a record of them or have them auto uploaded to your favorite repository like Google Photos (if you are like me).
Here is one I made with my dog last night.
