Can You Use GIFs as Discord Profile Banners?

Are you a Discord user looking to make your profile stand out? If so, you may be wondering if it's possible to use GIFs as profile banners. The answer is yes! You can upload files in GIF format, but keep in mind that you can't crop them. When you make your profile banner a GIF, it appears animated in the preview, but when you save the changes, it becomes static. If you're having trouble getting the GIF to look good on your profile, here are some tips to help you out.Nitro users have the option to create and upload custom profile banners that reflect their interests or personality.

You can coordinate the banner to match your profile picture, show off your favorite game character, or display a cool illustration.
