Upgrade your group video chat with the new GIF feature

You sometimes lack words when you’re having a group video chat with your friends and co-workers? With the brand new video injection feature of eyeson you won’t be in that situation anymore 😉

How does it work?

During the group video chat you only have to click on one of the emojis and then an animated GIF will be shown for a couple of seconds instead of your own video. Moreover, you can browse through GIPHY’s database if you are looking for something in particular.

Don’t you think so?

GIFs have manifested themselves as a part of the pop-culture. People react with them to certain events or they even create ones within less than a minute.

Additionally, language barriers do not have to be considered when using a GIF in your group video chat.

Can I use eyeson also without this feature?

Sure! Video reactions are enabled by default. You can disable them in your room settings. Therefore, you decide whether you want to use your group video chat with or without GIFs.
