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.

        Also, for those siting the GIPHY add-in as a solution, this will not work for people who are creating their own gifs. You have the ability to search gifs already existing on the GIPHY site/app/add-in, not your own. Specifically, for those who are using gifs to help users navigate custom files and UIs, this solution will not work.

        It helps greatly to be able to send my users a gif of the steps they need to take when using different interfaces, along with written directions. It's been a step back since our organization has moved to using Outlook.

        Support GIF's within e-mail body without requiring users to view in browser. Gifs are useless if they have to be opened. In this day and age it's unacceptable and embarassing. Get it together Outlook

        How do I vote for this multiple times...I completely agree!!! How can it be 2018 and we not have animated GIF's in emails? I'm an Apple guy at home but my work laptop is Outlook 2013 via Exchange. GIF's were invented in 1987, this must be such a low-cost update for Microsoft?!

        How is this still not supported? Outlook for Mac supports it, catchup Office for Windows team.

        I have comms teams that are trying to leverage GIFs for internal emails and this is a big miss given our employee audience. If Gmail can do this why can't Outlook?

        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?
