May I use animated .GIF ads for mobile and tablet?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

The link below states that "Animated GIFs cannot be used in mobile or tablet ads," however I am currently running approved animated gif ads for both tablet and mobile campaigns. I have called to ask about this a few times and no one really knows what to tell me except that ad review is subjective and that I should go by the current guidelines going forward. Can I continue to create gif ads for mobile and tablet? They seem to be working well for me and I don't understand why the guidelines state this if it is not being enforced.

 

Thanks for any feedback in advance.
