GIF animation not working xz2 Compact

I see a few threads on thus, but no solution yet. I love my new xz2 compact phone so far and was thrilled to finally be able to send and receive animated gifs via text, like my iPhone people, until I found out that the ones I send work but not the ones I receive. Has anyone found a decent workarou d on this?

Re: GIF animation not working xz2 Compact

@Pcb1GIFs are usually too large to be sent via MMS. iPhone users can work around that by using iMessage, which works between two Apple devices as an instant messenger using Internet connection instead of the limited MMS protocol. if you want to send larger files, try any of the instant messenger apps like Signal or Whatsapp, just keep in mind that the person you want to message with those needs to use the same app.
