Sometimes our message doesn't come across the way we want it to be. Almost daily, we send reaction GIFs in our text messages, share GIF memes on Instagram or Twitter, and send tutorial GIFs to our coworkers to show something too short to be a video. As powerful as GIFs can be, there's one component missing: sound. But, GIFs don't need sound.
Improve your viewers' experience and your communication style by adding words to your GIFs. Most meme GIFs have text written on them to convey the joke, making their viewer laugh. It's relatable!

Add a text box and write your message on the GIF. Change text font style, size, color and add effects to put animated text on GIF.
Export your GIF and share with anyone using the auto-generated link for your GIF or after downloading.
