Google is utilizing its ownership of the GIF sharing service Tenor, which the tech company purchased last year. And it is reported that because of this very acquisition, the new share feature was made possible.

Unfortunately though, not all GIFs can be shared on the mentioned apps. In order to get the new “share” button, partners from streaming services, movie studios, and the YouTube community will have to fill out Google’s partnership form to upload GIFs on Tenor.
