Hi. When using the messaging app and the default Samsung keyboard I can't seem to search through GIFs, only select ones in the categories. Why is this? It's really annoying. Screenshot attached.....Screenshot_20180505-101044_Messages.jpg

I have the same problem! So frustrating. Did you get an answer to this? Ives scrolled through replies and tried a few but nothing for me alot doesn't apply ... I have Samsung s7!x


It seems to be an issue with the stock Samsung keyboard.  Do you have the Samsung Neural keyboard as one of your keyboard options?

 

If not, download Gboard.  It's really good

DOWNLOAD GOOGLE KEYBOARD

It will allow you to get a regular keyboard and search gifs and emojis

I have a s7 running oreo using the stock Samsung keyboard  version 3.0.23.63 (says it's up to date). And there is not an option to search for gifs, only able to scroll thru categories . 

 

Many of the above suggestions about the smiley face aren't using the stock samsung keyboard. 

 

If anyone has found a solution I'd love to hear it. I have used gboard in the past, I like it.  But if I can use stock apps then that's memory I save.

Nope. It's not fixed. It doesn't even return anything when I search in my messaging app. What's happening? I've already uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no avail.
