What's New

We've overhauled Tenor's GIF Keyboard iMessage app for iOS 11.

Improvements include:
* Your iMessage GIF Keyboard is much faster, more reliable, and now supports HD GIFs
* Captioning is available in your Tenor iMessage app, along with easier favoriting and sticker creation
* Fast access to your profile, uploads, and favorites within your Tenor iMessage app
* Better GIF search, making finding the perfect GIF even easier

Finally, in iOS 11, Tenor is always one-tap away at the bottom of every iMessage conversation. Drag the blue Tenor "GIF" icon to the left side of your iMessage tray so it's always available.
