WhatsApp With GIF Support is Coming Very Soon

Almost all the pretty messaging apps out there support some form of GIF integration, but whatsapp is always feeding out with a static image. The latest beta release for iOS shows that things will likely change very soon.

Twitter user @WABetaInfo, who inform us about the changes to WhatsApp beta updates, notes that version 2.16.7.1 of the app will now autoplay GIF links and embed them directly into your conversations.

Interestingly the changelog also notes app will be able to save GIFs “as a simple image.” That’s a little wired given the reason for sharing a GIF is the animation, but perhaps it’s a space-saving thing.

Stay Tuned, we’ll contact WhatsApp for more information and keep you updated.
