WhatsApp beta for Android 2.18.93: what’s new?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

WhatsApp has submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to 2.18.93.
But what features has WhatsApp added in this update?
Analizying it, it seems nothing is new, but WhatsApp is starting to develop a new feature.
Let’s find out together what is it ..


• The Advanced GIF Search feature is not available yet.
WhatsApp is started to work on this feature in the 2.18.93 update, but the developers are keeping it disabled for development reasons and it will be enabled in next releases. So it’s okay if you have updated your WhatsApp version and you don’t see it, but probably it will be available very soon, also if we don’t precisely know the day.


WhatsApp is currently working to improve the GIF sharing feature, allowing the user to quickly search them using CATEGORIES.

Current supported categories are: TRENDING, LOL, LOVE, SAD, HAPPY and DANCING.
It’s really possible WhatsApp will support more categories later.

Another new featured added in the Advanced GIF Search feature, that will be available once the feature will be released for everyone, allows to quickly find Starred GIFs.

When no Starred GIFs are found, WhatsApp will show this in the Starred GIFs tab:

The feature is under development and it can be remotely enabled in next releases.
