To use, simply tap the Stickers icon usually found at the top of Stories and select the new GIF button. In it, users can expect to find a library of GIFs to browse through, including animated tacos and accessories.

"From bounding letters and twirling hearts to dancing cats and pizza in space, these animated stickers help you make any photo or video funny, interesting, or creative."
