Samsung's Galaxy S8 is packed full of awesome new features like the new larger screen, face recognition and Bixby AI assistant. But there's one pretty killer feature on the phone Samsung didn't bother to mention at its Unpacked event on Wednesday.

That feature: a built-in GIF maker. It's not like the Smart Select GIF maker that first appeared on the Galaxy Note 7 and later trickled to Samsung's Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab S3. It's even better.

Located within the Gallery app's video section is a little GIF-creation tool that lets you convert a section of any video (even ones you record) into an animated GIF.

Unlike the the Smart Select feature on the Note 7, you don't need to manually select a specific area on the screen to capture.

Just open up a video within the Gallery app, tap on the GIF icon, and then move the slider along the bottom to select the section of the video you want to convert into a GIF - and that's it! There are even settings to adjust the speed of the GIF.

I don't know about you, but this is a friggin' game-changer for anyone who's really into GIFs. If my genuine excitement in the video below doesn't convey how awesome this feature is, nothing will.
