Giphy for Slack
The Giphy app lets you search a library of animated GIFs and share them in Slack. Once Giphy is installed on your workspace, any member can use a slash command to post a random GIF in a channel or direct message.
Add the Giphy app to your workspace
Giphy app page in the Slack App Directory. Click
Add Giphy Integration.
Tip: You can enable previews and adjust GIF ratings from the Giphy app page.
Post a GIF
In the message field, type
/giphy followed by a word or phrase (try /giphy great job). If you don't like a random GIF, click

Note: Using common words and phrases can return unexpected results. Use with care!
