Add keyboard shortcut for gifs
Easily like half the reason I even use Slack is how easy it is to insert a gif. Having to physically click on that stupidly small gif button in Teams and then having to wait forever as all the gif options load up really slows the conversation down. Add a keyboard shortcut PLEASE
Very important - I often need to send coconut-related GIFs to my colleagues. Would simplify this a lot.

Totally agree about the little GIF button. It should be as simple as it is in Slack: /gip, then Tab to autocomplete, then type a search, then Enter, then enjoy the options!
I mean you could do it with the keyboard now, using Tab, Right Right Right, Enter. :facepalm:
Agreed. Ms should not be preventing us from adding media from keyboard. Re: "add Media from keyboard disabled by admin"
Ms can still offer their very limited selection of humorless gif images, but allow us to insert our own as well.

This is important to accomplish for nerd acceptance, though I think that having the matching GIFs load in the popup window is great. Slack implementations of GIFs either leave too much to chance (you don't get to select a GIF) or require hitting a Shuffle button or paging through just a few GIFS at a time. Telegram's @gif implementation is the best keyboard/UI combination I've ever seen, so that should be the gold standard (and would really just mean adding a keyboard shortcut to open up the GIF UI in Teams to support).
We need this! :)
