We're aware of an issue with the Giphy integration within Slack, where users may be seeing error messages, such as "could not match [search term]" when looking for GIFs.
We’re looking into the situation, and will share back updates as soon as we have them.

Note: We've updated this message to clarify one of the error messages was "could not match [search term]" when using the integration, so the expected results might've not appeared.
