Finding GIFs just got a whole lot easier thanks to Google.
The Mountain View, Calif., company announced Tuesday that it has added a new filter to its image search that lets users look for animated GIFs, which are a series of looping images that together look like a short video clip.
When users search for "scaredy cats," for example, they can click on the "Search tools" button, then switch "Any type" to "Animated" and all their results will be animated GIFs of easily scared cats. Users can click on each item thumbnail to expand the image and see the GIF in action.
Google announced the new filter on its Google+ account Tuesday morning, enlightening users about the origins of the image file format.
