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 :)

I want to presentate with a gif.
I think it would be great because a lot of schools use powerpoint online to quickly startup presentations
It's unless funny a presentation without a gif.
Hoje em dia diversos trabalhos de faculdades e empresas são interessantes inserir o gif online (mesmo sem internet). Ajudaria muito vocês agregarem esse tipo de ferramenta.

The upload photo button allows you to insert .gif files into PowerPoint Online, but the animated .gif files obviously do not work in the edit mode, but also do not work in presentation mode.

OK I made a PP presentation with animations (I made 1 slide with all animations, I made multiple slide with a different animation on each). I saved all as a gif. Then I used gifmaker.me and the animations I used in PP such as the entry and ending do not work. There has to be a way on my mac to do this. Using Powerpoint for Mac 14 on IMac Yosemite 10.10.5
It has to work as Embedded as well.
Bien sûr ! So easier in Google docs slides !!!
My saved GIF files created through Powerpoint do not animate in any program I have attempted to use to test operation to include all Windows web browsers (Chrome, Firefox & MS Edge), Windows File Explorer, and 3rd party apps GIF viewers. Only Powerpoint allows the file to play as designed...I have combed through Youtube without locating a solution.

Though its done, but its still glitchy.
Animation is breaking.
You can repro it.
Try adding this image (https://giphy.com/gifs/technology-hd-gifsremastered-116wwYf3ajIvrG) in a pptx and open in online and you will know what I mean.
GIFs not playing for me on online PowerPoint presentation - Chrome Version 72.0.3626.109 (Official Build) (64-bit)
The animated GIF isn't playing in Chrome or IE for me. Needs work.
Still not able to add gifs...
