Google+ is keen to maintain its reputation of being one of the most innovative social networks and has released a new update that allows you to set animated GIF images as your profile picture. Of course, MySpace has had this feature for a while, but with Google+, the feature is finally bound to get wider exposure.
The latest addition allows you to use the animated GIF images as your account’s banner and the image will be viewed by the users visiting your profile. The GIF images will animate on both the desktop version of the site and the mobile applications.
Meanwhile, Google is trying its best to promote its latest addition and is suggesting its users to make their own GIF images by re-directing them to “How to make a GIF” results in the Google search.
