Last summer, Tumblr launched the GIF button for its web version. The feature finally hit the Android app just last month.

At the time, Tumblr said the function would come to iOS soon, and soon is now. As SocialTimes reports, the new Tumblr iOS update has added the GIF button.

Tumblr runs down what all is now in the update in a Friends-style description:

Episode 5.1.1: The One Where They Add GIFs to Posts
Joey shows Chandler how to add GIFs to a post; Ross gets into hot water with Rachel when he accidentally reblogs a fellow anthropologist (Christine Baranski) with a very flirtatious GIF; Phoebe volunteers for the mob.

Episode 5.1.2: The One With the Messages
Rachel gets a message from an intriguing young Tumblr (Edward Furlong) and replies to it by swiping on the push notification; Joey wins an alpaca and sets a kitchen on fire; the gang goes to the beach.

Episode 5.1.3: The One With The iPhone 6s
Monica reminisces about all the blogs she's following and Peeks on them for previews; Rachel and Phoebe swipe up during a Peek to send a message; Ross Pops Rachel's Tumblr to see the whole thing...but will he pop the question? (Clip show)

How cute. You can grab the update here.
