Whether you're looking to reach out to people who contact you or forward a message, this workflow can spice up your emails with some animated graphics. After being completely set up, it will trigger whenever you receive a new email that matches your search query on Gmail. Then we'll find a random GIF on GIPHY with the keywords you want, and automatically send out a new email with the GIF via your Gmail account. Use this to congratulate new hires when you get a team email, announce other good news to the rest of the team when you receive it, thank people for writing to you, or anything else.

Note: By default this automation will send an email to the sender of the original email that triggers it, but the recipients can be changed at any time

How this Gmail-GIPHY integration works

  1. A new email is received and matches your search query
  2. Zapier automatically finds a random GIF on GIPHY to match it, and sends out an email to anyone you want via Gmail

Apps involved

  • Gmail
  • GIPHY

Note: This integration will only work if you have a Business Gmail account - these have custom domains. Free consumer Gmail accounts cannot be used with this integration. Read Help docs here.
