After searching GIPHY, an online database that contains billions of GIFs, stickers, and more, you’ve found it. You’ve spotted the perfect GIF. Now, it’s time to share it in your group chat so your friends can get a feel for your reaction—no words necessary.
No matter how you pronounce it, GIFs are the ultimate visual metaphor. And now, thanks to a partnership with Spotify and GIPHY, music can be part of the equation. We’re teaming up with GIPHY to enable new Spotify-linked artist GIFs. When users click the GIF on the verified GIPHY artists’ pages, they’ll be taken directly to the featured artist’s Spotify page for a listening session.
Users around the globe can find the feature on verified GIPHY artist pages and they can be experienced through both GIPHY’s web and mobile platform. Here’s how it works:
- Search for artists’ GIFs on their official GIPHY channel via GIPHY.com or GIPHY’s mobile apps
- Once on the artist’s official GIPHY channel, click on the GIF you’d like to use
- Tap the “Listen on Spotify” button on any participating GIF
- Users will be taken directly to the artist’s Spotify page, where they can listen and discover even more music from artists they love
