    These types of files (example APNG) is not very take by the normal people. The developers of Discord are not going work for add options optional. Discord is not cloud, but for the players.

    I'm going to quote myself from https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360030116852-APNG-support :
    ```
    The desktop client itself seems to support apngs. However, the server resizes images before embedding -- leaving only the first frame as the embedded image (instead of an animation).

    To clarify, I'm not asking for apng emojis or avatars, just embedded images.
    ```

    The devs really don't need to put it much work here(probably), they just need to sanitize their compression/resizing algorithm that happens server-side.

    Because APNGs aren't fully supported, they can currently be used to hide content in the second frame of an image. So far I've only seen gnomes and jokes, but it could also be used to hide offensive content. This is another good reason to support APNGs better, to fix this problem.

    APNGs are nice and I like them. :3
    Would love to see them properly supported in Discord.

    Pretty sure it was removed because people were making apng emoticons and pfp without nitro.
