What is a GIF for WhatsApp?

Gif comes from the acronym (Graphic Interchange Format) and is nothing more than a video made in loop by frames of no more than 3-5 seconds.



This feature has not been implemented in our favorite mobile phone messaging client. With which you had to resort to third-party applications to enjoy the gif per WhatsApp.

The only downside is that this feature is not activated by default, so you will need to download the latest version of the beta tester application. That is, the previous version of the official Google Play.
