WhatsApp for Android adds gif library, Raises media-sharing limit to 30, The social media grant took its own sweet time adding support for GIFs to its messaging app on Android, and even with that, it required users to bring their own animations to the party. Thankfully, for the new gif feature.

A beta version – v2.17.6 to be precise – includes a new feature that lets you search and send GIFs from Giphy’s massive library (or Tenor for some users, as I discovered while testing it on my phone in Nigeria). You can invoke it by tapping the emoji button next to the text input field and then toggle between emoji and GIFs from the new bottom bar.

Another change showing in the WhatsApp app is the raise of the limit on shared media. Previously, you couldn’t send more than 10 photos or videos through WhatsApp in one go, you had to pick 10, send, pick 10 others, send, and so on. Now the limit is 30 items so you can share more photos and videos in one go with less risk for duplicates or forgotten items.

If you want to try out these options, you need version 2.17.6 beta, which you can obtain either by joining the Google Play Store beta and downloading it there or by grabbing the APK directly from APK Mirror
