The WhatsApp Beta app for Windows 10 Mobile devices has just update to version 188.8.131.52 and has added the feature for sending video files as animated gifs. After updating the app, the option should appear when choosing to send a video to a contact.
The WhatsApp Beta app is used by the developers to test features before adding them to the main, public WhatsApp app. This gif-sending feature should become available for most users sometime over the next few months.
WhatsApp is a very popular phone call and messaging app which is known for its security and affordability. Here are some of its features:
NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone’s Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don’t have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.
MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.
FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they’re in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Available on Windows Phone 8+. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can’t access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp).
NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There’s no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.*
SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone’s existing address book.
