ave you ever struggled to find that perfect GIF to send to someone? Sure, you could always use something like GIF hunter (which is slow) or Tumblr (which is clumsy). But more often than not, those services' respective GIF-finding abilities...fall short.

Don't worry, though! 

Things are about to get much, much easier.

In a new Google+ post, the company announced that new filters are coming to Image Search. Pretty soon, you'll be able to narrow your search to animated images only — a feature that some say is long overdue. 

Don't get too excited, though. 

The feature hasn't rolled out for everyone...at least not yet. 

It will soon, though!

And when it does, it'll be something to celebrate.

I know, Ricky. Me too. (Via Google)
