Note 8 - gif animations sent via text are sped up to hyperspeed

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hey everyone.

  

   So I came from a Note 5 and I used the default "messages" app and when I found find a funny GIF I would send a friend a text by loading up the pictures icon and finding The gif and hitting send. The animations would send and would be received in normal time.

 

  Since I've had the Note 8, as soon as I attach any size gif or even make my own GIF using handwriting (live message), it speeds up the animation to hyperspeed and myself and the recipient can barely tell what's going on as it's sped up so fast?

Anyone else have this issue?

Your Welcome!

I adjusted mine to "Off" and all GIFs, annimation, etc. is working fine!

 

  1. Go to Settings > About phone
  2. Find Build number and tap it 7 times in quick succession
  3. A notification will tell you when Developer options have been unlocked
  4. Now, go back to Settings > Developer options
  5. Scroll down to Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale
  6. Adjust them all 0.5x or off

Same issue here. would love to know how to fix this annoying problem. Almost annoying enough to make me consider going back to the dark side.

I think I found a 3rd party app that works, it works for me (Note8 on Xfinity/Verizon)

 

The app is called "Pulse SMS" by Luke Klinker

 

Hopefully it works for you guys as well.

Hello there folks.
I certainly want to assist further with this matter. To better do that, can the Community have some added details about your specific device and this concern? Things that will help the most would be the exact model number and Baseband version (both under Settings>About Device) for your device as well as your carrier, when you started noticing this happen, and what you've already tried to fix it. Thanks!

Thank you for your interest in solving the matter!

 

Model SM-N950U

Baseband version N950USQU1AQI5

Verizon Network

 

  I'm using the default "Messages" app, version 4.3.01.1.    Although I've noticed if I use that or Verizon's "Message+" app it's still the same results. 

 

   GIF animations sent via text are sped up and unwatchable.       If I send GIFs via Instagram, email, Facebook,  etc it plays at normal speed.  Only via text is the issue.

As for when the issue happened... since day one when I got the phone.   I've only tried other applications.  The default text apps don't seen to work well but others have reported using different apps with success, such as Textra

I have this GIF hyperspeed problem with my Note 8 from Verizon. Verizon says it's a problem with Samsung. I am a long time Note user, but the Apple X GIF/Emoji feature is off the chain. What's up with this Samsung. How did we allow Apple to beat us to this?
