WhatsApp Adds GIF Search And Increases File Sharing Limit To 30


WhatsApp just introduced a new feature but it's still in beta :  GIF search.  It allows you search for and add GIFs without leaving the messaging platform. WhatsApp added support for GIFs some of months ago, although it was limited to sharing GIFS  stored on your phone. The new update makes it easier to search through Giphy's extensive library and add GIFs directly from within WhatsApp's interface. The update also increases the media sharing limit from 10 to 30.

You can access the GIF search by selecting the emoji button to the left of the text box. Once you're in the emoji selection window, you'll see an option to toggle between emoji and GIFs. The other tab shows you a list of popular GIFs, and there's also an option to search through Giphy if you have a particular keyword in mind.

The ability to search GIFs is now live in the beta client (1.27.7), and should be rolling out to the stable release shortly...

I'm currently using this beta release and its fun. Hopefully when it gets released for full use it'll be better.
