Google noted the explosion of GIFs on the internet and created a search feature specifically for them. You can find it by simply searching for a term in images, clicking on the any type tab and selecting animated.
Then, you'll be able to scroll through them and click on the GIF to watch the animation.
In addition to the feature, Google has also added a GIF profile picture option for its Google+ users.
Steiner says the GIF will animate on the profile page on both desktop and mobile.
