Whatsapp is rolling out a new update with GIF search and media sharing limit is increased from 10 to 30. Although, few months back whatsapp has given the support for GIFs in chat which are locally stored.
With Today’s update you can now search for GIFs within the chat interface of Whatsapp. GIF search is accessible by selecting the emoji button to the left of the text field. Once you’re in the emoji selection window, you’ll see an option to toggle between emoji and GIFs. The latter 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 update also increase the media limit from 10-30 files at a time. Both these features are live in the beta client (1.27.7) . If you want to use these features right away, than you have to enroll into the Whatsapp beta program.
