WhatsApp’s new beta version comes with new GIF search option. The new beta version also allows users to send 30 files at a time instead of 10.
WhatsApp Brings GIF Search
These new features are available from WhatsApp beta V2.17.6 for Android. Users can now search for GIF images directly from the app and use them in conversations. The GIF search can be accessed by taping the emoji button.
Opening the GIF section will show you the popular GIF images. You can also search for related GIF using keywords, select the one you like and send it without even leaving the app. Some users are seeing Giphy search and others are getting TENOR GIF search, may be it depends of which keyboard you are using.
WhatsApp also increased the limit of sharing 10 photos at a time to 30 at a time. It is helpful while sending bulk images. The stable version will be out soon and you will be able to search for GIF images without leaving the app and send up to 30 images at a time.
