Pinterest is testing out animated GIF support

Posted Jan 21, 2014

Pinterest is currently testing out GIF support for pinboards. Currently, animated GIFs appear as just a static image that links to the animated GIF. The animated GIFs will have a “Play” button to start the animation.


The play button would turn into a pause button after while the image is animated. This feature should be rolled out to all Pinterest users soon.
