Google has just unveiled a Google+ update that’s sure to thrill all you GIF lovers out there.

Starting today, you can now use an animated GIF as your profile picture. The GIF will animate on profile pages on both mobile and desktop. As of now, the GIFs don’t animate in the stream – so make sure that the still image for your new profile GIF is also presentable.

edit:  like newspapers in Harry Potter :)

Google software engineer Matt Steiner has implemented the new profile GIF, and you can check it out here.

Speaking of Google and GIFs, they recently made it easier to find animated GIFs by adding a new “animated” search filter in Image Search.
