How can we improve your Desktop Outlook 2016 experience?

Make GIFs available for Outlook 2007 to 2016!

I can't see GIFs on my Outlook from 2007 to 2016. It'd be great for everyone to experience this awesome feature. Even Microsoft has use them and it's sad that I need to send it to other email clients to see it.

        C'mon, the mac os version of outlook has animated GIFs, why not the windows outlook client?

        GIF is a common feature on any other mail app. Please make it happened in outlook

        This is more than a 'fun' feature. GIFs can actually be used for really productive scenarios, especially for capturing motion prototypes, etc. in a lightweight fashion.

        Default state is enabled moving
        With new account set up showing disable gifs playing to static until highlighted, or just static.

        I love using short gifs to show processes at work, but can't send them via email.

        PLEASE enable animated graphics in emails to appear as moving not static. Please allow us to save them, copy them and paste them.

        My signature on all my emails has been a barking puppy through Lotus Notes. We recently converted to Outlook....no support!!!So unhappy right now! Please catch up with the times MS. Aren't you guys suppose to be forward thinking and innovative?

        GIFs are becoming an increasingly common piece of the modern language to communicate an idea, reaction, etc.

        Maybe it's a fad, but it's been a popular thing for... 6... 10 years? What's the Roi for such an enhancement?
        Microsoft being "behind" on this paints a very bad picture to the average modern user. I start to think... Apple is more "forward" about keeping up with modern users, whereas Microsoft is not. What clientele is Microsoft targeting? The ever-decreasing older folks? Makes me want to go Apple.

        This is crazy that outlook does not support such a simple feature especially since sending gifs it so popular.

        No one uses clip art anymore, instead why not create a gif library. Facebook updated this some time ago and it is a great feature. Please make GIFs available for use in emails

        I'm disappointed that there are no gifs or emoji's or happy faces or anything on the Outlook 2010 email. I know the Outlook on the web has them but it doesn't support my Telus email--only my hotmail.

        This! GIFs are available on OWA, Outlook for Mac, and old versions of Outlook for Windows! Give us GIFs, please!

        All the votes! Doesn't make sense that GIFs are available on OWA, Outlook for Mac, and even older versions of Outlook for Windows! Please give us GIFs!
