Gif emotes for your own channel

When sending in your emotes for your channel. Are you able to send in gif emotes too or is it just png only?

PNG is preferred or you will lose background transparency. If you mean animated gifs those are not currently supported for users at this time.

But PepePls is allowed as an animated GIF-BTTV emote, so why we can’t do it?

That emote has been removed.
