How to Send GIF Files in WhatsApp

As we all know that we cannot send GIF files in WhatsApp. But this is soon going to be the thing of past and WhatsApp will soon let you send GIF files right in the app to anyone.

WhatsApp released a huge update today which introduced Snapchat like doodling and you can add colored text and emojis on any image before you send it, just like Snapchat. It also introduced front face flash for the front camera which will brighten the screen to its maximum level and then take the photo to ensure excellent photo in low-light conditions. The new version of WhatsApp also introduced video zoom while recording it from the inbuilt camera. All of the above-mentioned features are available for public today.

Once you download the APK file, install it like any normal APK file. If it asks you to check unknown sources before installing the APK file, check it. The file is totally safe to download and install and it is working fine. We have personally tested it.

After installing the APK file, select any GIF file from your gallery and send it just like a normal image file.

That’s all. Enjoy sending GIF files to your friends.
