Introducing the New and Improved GIPHY SDK

June 26, 2019 by GIPHY

Today, we’re announcing our new and improved GIPHY SDK, the fastest and easiest way to integrate the world’s most-loved GIF library — and the full GIPHY experience — into your app for free. Built with developers and product designers in mind, our SDK is the best way to get direct access to GIFs, stickers, and new content like GIPHY Emoji and Text.

GIPHY SDK is packed with powerful features

Packed with powerful features used by the biggest apps in the world, the GIPHY SDK brings the magic of GIPHY to your app with just a few lines of code. To make integrating the GIPHY SDK even more of a no-brainer, our favorite features include…

Content on Content: Access to our infinite library of GIFs and stickers featuring the latest in entertainment, sports, and more from GIPHY’s tens of thousands of official content partners and unique artists.

Customization: Pre-built, customizable template options — available in both dark and light UI formats — so you can find the perfect look for your app.

Dark and light mode on GIPHY SDK

Exclusive Features: Unlock GIPHY’s latest content releases, such as animated GIPHY Emoji and Text, as well as new formats and content-drops, which will only be available to developers through the GIPHY SDK.

Powerful Search: Our search algorithm lets you deliver the right GIF, at the right time, every time.

In addition, we believe sharing content and expressing yourself should be safe and easy. That’s why we moderate our content so you can rest assured that everything served by GIPHY in your app is safe for distribution. 

With the latest GIPHY SDK, our best-in-class tools are readily available to help power your creativity. Now, any app can have a GIPHY button. To get started, head over to our brand new DevPortal at and click ‘create an app’ to receive your API key and start building today. GIPHY SDK is available for both iOS and Android. 

We’re excited to see what you build!
