Actually you are not yet allowed to send a real GIF, but in the meanwhile you can follow this simple procedure: select any video, crop it to 6 seconds or less and click on the GIF button to send it as a GIF. Last but not least, this latest version of WhatsApp brings also an improved set of emojis with even some 3D emoji.
