hi all,

today someone shared an image (animated) in Whatsapp, it is showing its animation in Whatsapp chat screen without touching it...
in Whatsapp folders i can see it in a folder /media/Whatsapp Animated Gifs/ where it is saved by app as .mp4

previously when i used an app Convert GIF to video & share it is, as name says, converting to video format and in whatsapp chat screen it is showing that its a video file, we have to Play it, but this one (above mentioned) no need to even touch to see animation,.

googled for it and found old methods including a rename to .mp3, after renaming to .mp3 whatsapp saying that Not supported file format

how i can do this to share animated GIFs which no need to touch to see its animation?

please help.
regards
