    So I just got a new 6t and I am not able to access GIFs on any of the keyboards. It shows unable to connect to the internet both on Gboard and SwiftKey keyboard

    Looks like a network issue. Try switching between WiFi and mobile data.

    when I search for a specific gif, it took a long time to load, then the msg would show "network not working" or "something wrong," while my internet is fine. Why is this happening? :'( pls help

    I have had this same problem for at least a month now. I am currently making this post over my data connection, so that is clearly working, but when I search for a gif I wait for about 10s and then get told 'could not connect to the internet'.
    This is disappointing as the gif feature is so fun!
    If it isn't fixed I will buy a brand of phone that allows me to send gifs - there doesn't seem to be a reasonable explanation for this bug.

    You do realize that this isn't an OP problem but a Gboard problem. There is literally nothing we can do about it.

    Look once in the app permissions.
    Are all necessary authorizations activated there?
    You have always set the active keyboard as default?

    Interesting. I am not having the issue with either Swiftkey or Gboard on my 6 with 9.0.4.

    I had this problem since several months now, and find out were the problem was.
    In every keyboard apps (Gboard, Swiftkey), no GIFs were shown and the error message "you need an internet connection to view gif" appeared everytime.
    The simple trick was to deactivate the "battery saver", and the GIFs were back.

    Hope this can help some of you too :)

    Hmm, I don't have a solution. I just bought my 1+ 6t yesterday and as I'm responding to you, on my Gboard, the GIF option is working for me.
