Make it so GIF files can play.
It would be good if GIF files can play in online presentations.
Thank you for your feature request! We are excited to announce that animated gif files can now playback in slide show in PowerPoint Online!
To give it a try, you may add your animated gif file to a presentation via “Insert → Picture”, and then present your slide via “View → From Current Slide” (or, “From Beginning”, if you prefer). The animated gif should play in your presentation now!
Enjoy, and please keep voting on the features in your wish list :)
it still doesnt't work :-( Come on, with homeschooling and Corona let me entertain my students with GIFS!

Can someone specify the format and file size of the gifs that do work online?

Still doesnt work on web but works on pc in app when in presentation mode.
This still doesn't work on the web or Mac ... not sure about PC.
I came here vote for this feature, which is still unavailable yet, the voting is closed and GIF STILL WON'T PLAY IN SLIDESHOW mode. What do we need to do make this happen? It almost 2021. Come on man!
Does NOT work once I present - glad I wasted so much time on this.
Animated gif doesn't work. I tried drag&drop as well as insert as picture. IT shows first image of the gif but is not moving forward. Gif is 20MB.
