WhatsApp Gets A Major Update But Millions Won't Be Able To Access To New Features


Some WhatsApp users can now get access to host of bonus features.

The world's most popular messaging app has just released its latest Android beta version which includes GIF search.

WhatsApp added GIF support to its platform last year but this is the first time users have been able to find these moving images directly from within the app.

The search, which is similar to Apple's messages, finds GIFs from services such as GIPHY.

These can then be simply embedded into messages at the tap of button.

Along with GIFs the update also allows fans to share more media at once - the limit has now been raised from ten files to thirty files.

This will be good news for people who currently have to send multiple message if they want to include more than ten media file.

Android beta version 2.17.6 is available now with a full Android release expected soon.

There's currently no word on when an iOS version will be released but iPhone users could have to wait months before they get these new features.

WhatsApp is known to launch its updates on either iOS or Android first, with the a full rollout coming later.

Last year WhatsApp revealed its new camera modes went live on Android weeks before the iPhone.

WhatsApp users were recently targeted by a scam that suggested they were about to be charged for using the free service.

A message begun doing the rounds that stated from today, "WhatsApp will become chargeable."

It then went on to warn users that the only way to stop the daily fee is to forward the message to "at least 10 contacts."

This will allegedly show WhatsApp the recipient is an avid user and once sent to the contacts your WhatsApp logo, which is usually green, will turn blue and your messages will remain free.

Having given advice on how to avoid such hoaxes, WhatsApp suggests users don't interact with messages that instruct you to forward the message on, those which promise rewards or any which claim to be from WhatsApp itself.

"We always advise you to block the sender, disregard the message and delete it," the company said.
