What We're Building

Tenor (formerly Riffsy) helps people find the right GIF at the right moment. In a world that now largely operates via texts, social media messages, DMs and Slack channels, it can be hard to articulate exactly what you mean with keystrokes alone. Tenor’s GIF Keyboard makes it easy for people to visually express what’s on their mind.

Beyond Tenor's GIF Keyboard, we extend our mobile-focused experience through our API, powering GIF sharing for partners like Facebook Messenger, Google’s G Board, LinkedIn, Kik, Kika, LinkedIn & Vodafone. Together across Tenor's offerings, hundreds of millions of users perform billions of searches every month for GIFs and videos from the world’s greatest content creators.

The company is based in San Francisco, and is backed by Redpoint and Menlo Ventures.
