Hurray! Now you can send gifs on the Facebook Messenger app without installing third party apps!

Earlier this year at Facebook’s F8 Developer Conference, Facebook revealed the Messenger Platform — a tool that allows users to hold conversations by choosing from various third-party apps. Giphy and a few exclusive apps were selected to integrate directly with Facebook Messenger.
