Provide a way for an individual to minimize animated GIF display for their local teams client.
Animated gifs can be very distracting visual noise and obscure the more important content in a team conversation. Allow an individual to opt out of viewing animated GIFS and automatically minimize them.
Updating these items after merging into our main issue. This feature has been completed. Thank you.

Slack has this feature. You can easily close/hide animated GIFs. I wouldn't want a brute force setting to either allow or block these gifs. I want to allow them...and then to HIDE them to they're not distracting.

Yes, please. I dread looking at chat in Teams because of animated GIFs.

Note: Google Chrome 74 now includes a "no animation" option. https://venturebeat.com/2019/04/23/google-chrome-74/
If browser companies recognise the distracting and annoying nature of animations, surely an office productivity tool should too.
