    Giphy today announced an update for its iOS app, bringing its GIF-sharing keyboard extension to any app that supports multimedia, including Mail, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Instagram, and more. The update also introduces a "Sticker Maker" feature exclusive to iPhone X, XS, XS Max, and XR devices that have Apple's TrueDepth Camera system (via Engadget).

    Sticker Maker allows iPhone X owners to turn selfies into custom animated GIF stickers, which you can then share in Apple iMessage and any other texting app. In the Giphy app this feature can be found in the "Plus" symbol tab, tap "Sticker", and then you can take your photo. The image has to be uploaded to a Giphy account so you can use it across Giphy's connected apps and keyboard extension.

    Giphy's own GIF features have powered other apps before, including GIF sticker search in Instagram. The company's keyboard extension also works with Apple iMessage, similar to apps like GIF Keyboard. Although Apple's iMessage App Store introduced app-based alternatives, many keyboard extensions like these have remained popular over the years.

    Isn't a different keyboard like this extension a privacy concern?

    With Apple's stance on privacy would they create support for third party keyboards if that was the case?
