Samsung Galaxy s21+ with the latest OS.

For the past 4 or 5 days, gifs that people send me are coming through like this. Not all of them are doing it, but I would say about 50% of them. It happens on both the stock samsung messaging app and also Textra. It's happening with all the people I talk to. I have a few group chats and sometimes the gifs are fine and sometimes they are like this in the same chat regardless of who sends them. Happens in the one on one chats too, so it's not just a group thing. Most of these people have apple, but this has never happened before until a few days ago. I'm not sure what's happening. I uninstalled and reinstalled Textra, but I never thought that would fix the problem as it's happening on the stock messaging app too. My galaxy didn't get an update, my apps didn't get updates, maybe Apple did an update recently? Has anyone seen this before?

I'm having the same issue and I'm not quite satisfied with the last person's answer. Does anyone have any clue what is happening?

  • I have been experiencing the same issue all week. I have tried clearing my cache, looking for updates, switching messaging apps. Nothing has resloved the issue. I am also on a Samsun Android.

Exact issue using Google messages. I think its an iPhone related issue.

I came looking for this question because I'm having the same issue, specifically since May 1. That was the first day it started. Maybe 25% of the gifs coming in are doing this and I have an S23.

I'm having the exact same issue on my Pixel 8 Pro with Google Messages. This is about the only thread I've found that is actually talking about this specific problem. If I find any answers I'll report back as well.
