How can I view GIF images on my iPhone?

By giangxiu037 ·
When I see an interesting GIF, I tap and hold on it to save. The GIF will then be saved to the Camera Roll. But the problem is, I'm not able to view it. The GIF now is just a static image.
Can I view it without installing a third-party software? If I have to, which app is the best for this purpose?

I save the gif to my camera roll. It is dynamic when I check. But the problem is when I try to post it to some social websites. The gif becomes a static image.

I know that you prefer to not use a 3rd party app, but it's the only thing that worked for me. I use Giphy instead.
