In the last days, WhatsApp was working on a new important update for WhatsApp Web.
The update contains bug fixes (in particular for the last seen feature), several improvements and maybe something else.. but we’re able to show you some screenshots of an upcoming feature of a pre-release!
- The GIF Sharing Tool is currently available, but the improvements no yet.
- WhatsApp is working on this feature for an upcoming update and it’s not currently ready in the current one.
For this reason, it’s ok if you open WhatsApp Web and you see this feature in the old location.
Be patient to use the improved feature in the next WhatsApp Web updates.
GIF SHARING TOOL
It’s been a while since WhatsApp has added the possibility to share GIFs with your contacts on iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
Currently, you can view sent and received GIFs using WhatsApp Web, thanks to the GIF Sharing Tool, but really soon this button will be moved in order to host new features!
Currently, the GIF Sharing Tool allows to search GIFs via Tenor (if your phone number ends with an even number) or via GIPHY (if your phone number ends with an odd number). It currently allows to see Trending GIFs in that moment, but in future there will be some quick GIFs categories available!
After moving the new GIF button, WhatsApp is developing a Stickers button (also if doesn’t look fine yet), that allows to open the WhatsApp Stickers Store, confirming the feature coming for WhatsApp Web:
We don’t know when an update that enables the feature will be available but, as always, we will keep you updated once it will be online.
Let us know on Twitter if you like this feature and read our next announcements on our Telegram Channel!
