Giphy slow search and images load blank
Improve performance of Giphy. Yes I know it isn't yours but it is so slow at times to load a search result or the gif doesn't load at all. Maybe provide them with free Azure hosting?

This thread is old, but I'm only recently having these issues.

Unable to load Giphy at all, also can't able to see received GIF's from teammates.
It's terrible! Giphy isn't loading at all. Running clunky and extra slow. I can inly see the first 10 or so gifs and then it freezes up. Not fun anymore. Used to spend hours here, now after 5 minutes I have to close window.

Seems to be recent , would it have something to do with the NET neutrality repeal and ISP intentionally slowing such a site ??Seems to only have been that way for me this week last week giphy was fast as ever I have 100mbps internet , but since repeal of net neutrality have been more and more acting like dial up
GIF search powered by Giphy is currently too slow. You should look at the implementation done by Facebook in both the page and Whatsapp client. Response is immediate. Teams's response makes it unusable right now. That plus not having the possibility of pasting an image URL and have it display in the chat window automatically.
I know it seems unimportant, but it improves the communication we have among the team. :)
My team has repeatedly told me this is taking a hit on their productivity. All they ever wanted to do was share dank GIFs, but the loading time is so long it's distracting them from actual work.

Our team LOVES Giphy, but I hate waiting for the damned search to load. If there was any way to make the search faster, I'd be soooo elated. Thanks!
Not sure why you can't lazy load a few from the top instead of trying to do so many so fast. Just put in a slash command for this and be done with it.

When I use it in the mobile app it is basically instant. Why can't I have similar speeds in the desktop app?
Specifically, whenever I search using the Giphy search bar, it takes at least 10 seconds before the gif starts to load
Giphy in general is terrible after using 'Gif Keyboard' in Slack. The search works so much better, not to mention being able to add your own captions to the gif you select.
This is really annoying. Especially for my teams who are accustom to the slash commands in slack that would load gifs immediately.
