Tenor GIF Keyboard is a new bot now available on the new Facebook Messenger Bot platform introduced at today’s F8 conference. Communicate your thoughts or feelings with the perfect GIF that gets your point across better than words ever could in a one-on-one or group Messenger chat.

GET STARTED: Launch Tenor GIF Keyboard from the new Facebook Messenger Bot tray.

  1. Search for the perfect GIF or explore trending searches and GIFs.

  2. Favorite it to build a go-to collection of Tenor GIFs that reflect your moods and style.

  3. Add captions to personalize your message.

Today’s launch of Tenor GIF Keyboard on the new Messenger Bot platform builds on our long-standing relationship with Facebook, which we kicked off in July 2015 with the introduction of Tenor GIF-sharing in Messenger. We’re now taking advantage of Facebook’s new Bot platform and making it even easier to share GIFs in your conversations with friends and family – the full Tenor experience is available with no app install required.
