WhatsApp latest update is rolled out and this new update came with GIF Search added and Media sharing limit increased to 30 items. These are included in WhatsApp 2.17.6 beta for Android. The GIF Searching functionality was available to iOS users since last year’s November.
Before this, the Android users were able to top send GIFs stored on the device but now the GIF search functionality is added into the app. Tap on the emoji icon next to the text bar and you will notice a new GIF option at the bottom of the emoji window. This will allow you to search GIFs through Giphy or Tenor.
Another feature that was included with this beta is that users will now be able to send 30 files at a time. The previous limit was 10 files but now this limit is increased to 30 files and this will remove the annoyance of selecting multiple files over and over again.
The release data for this beta isn’t announced but it will be rolling out in a few weeks if nothing goes wrong with this beta. These features aren’t rolled out to every beta tester and this will depend upon the location.
The latest beta will be available from Play Store but for this, you need to be a beta tester of WhatsApp in order to install this beta. If you are a beta tester then let me know in comments below about this beta.
