I am currently using a Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which in the default messaging app has a keyboard option to send a gif image. When selected gifs appear and there are categories at the bottom (Trending, Happy, Fun, etc. etc.) However, I find this to be very ineffective and restrictive to find the actual gifs I want.

I checked on an Android forum, where some of the responses seem to indicated there is a search function, but this seems to be applicable to the S9 and conflicting information if it still exists.

So now I turn here... Does a search function exist for the gif keyboard, and if so how do I access it?

Message version: -- Message Service version


While I have not found any function within the Samsung Keyboard to allow for a search, this problem is easily solved by downloading a third-party keyboard...

I chose Gboard.

I have also heard that SwiftKey is a popular option.
