With Hulu launching GIFs for the movies and TV series that are present on the platform, it certainly has given rise to a new type of competition in the world of digital streaming apps. Let us find out as to what this GIF feature is and how it will make things more exciting for the Hulu users.
Hulu, one of the top streaming service, wants to help you find the ideal GIF for any occasion. For this, the video platform has launched the site “The Perfect GIF”, hosted on Tumblr, which brings together animated images of movies and series with licensed content. GIFs have been gaining a lot of popularity in the social media world. People like to talk to one another in GIFs because it is more fun that way.
While GIFs are already available on all major social media platforms, but the ones created by Hulu are special because the company has launched GIFs from its own movies and TV series. It is not yet known as to what the monetary benefits are by launching GIF feature, but there has to be something that Hulu wants to capitalize on.
Despite being within the Tumblr universe, the novelty is not a simple blog, but a comprehensive search tool for GIFs. By browsing the site Hulu Perfect GIF (huluperfectgif.tumblr.com) you can filter the images by three main categories: Actions, Reactions, and Shows.
Within each option, however, several other sections have been created, in hashtag form, to make search more specific, such as #workingout, #cooking, #dancing, and #awkward, and others, all in English.
Hulu makes the platform a means of publicizing the service, as each GIF has the #hulu hashtag in the lower right corner, in addition to the station’s logo and the program or movie in question. That way, it helps to spread the brand, especially among the younger audience using Tumblr and Netflix competitor.
At the launch, “The Perfect GIF” features a selection of more than 1,400 GIFs from dozens of movies and series from the biggest networks such as FOX, NBC, MTV, and Bravo, as well as classics like Star Trek.
In addition to Tumblr itself, Hulu GIFs can be sent to other social networks like Pinterest and Twitter. GIFs are available for download and can also be shared via email.
Hulu has a knack of providing new features to its users from time to time, and this could be taken as one of those steps because no other streaming service provider has launched GIF feature as of yet.
If you are interested in using the GIFs that Hulu has to offer, then you will have to log into your Hulu account and then, look for GIF section. If you are not able to find GIF section in your Hulu account, then you will have to take help of Hulu help and support facility because only they will be able to assist you in the most accurate manner.
