Everyone loves a well-chosen GIF, and Samsung Galaxy phones let you create them straight from any on-screen YouTube video—no third-party add-ons required. Instead, all you need is an integrated app called Smart Select, available on Galaxy phones released in 2017 or later.

First, open a video in the YouTube app, and then access Smart Select. On a Galaxy phone, you’ll then swipe in from the right, and on a Note device, you can remove the S Pen to display the Air Command menu on the right side of the screen. Next, tap on GIF Animation. Arrange the frame box, start playing the video, and tap Record to capture the clip you like. When you’re done, tap Stop to store the GIF in your Gallery app. From this repository, you can load the file into other apps and share it with other people the same way you’d share a photo.
