Another update came out today Whatsapp on the App Store!
What's new in version 2.18.80
- Now you can use Siri to send messages to WhatsApp groups.
Although the changelog be very simple and focus only on Siri related news (cool), the blog WABetaInfo reported that the update also brings initial work in a new extension for notifications.
The novelty, which is still in development, will finally allow us to view images in full resolution directly through the expanded notification (via Peek & Pop) including support for animated GIFs. If the user has configured that WhatsApp does not automatically download media, you will have to tap the download button to do so.
As always, today's update also comes with general improvements and bug fixes.
