You can now view WhatsApp GIFs in the notification itself. [atualizado]

What's New for Users of WhatsApp Messenger and the chance for you to join this group select 99.9%! 😛

Today, the iOS app has been updated and has gained an interesting feature: now, when receiving photos or GIFs, you will be able to see a preview of the media file using 3D Touch or by swiping left on the notification and tapping “View”. Obviously, in case of using 3D Touch, you need to have an iPhone 6s or higher; to view sliding notification, I need to be running iOS 10 or higher.

However, we tested it here in a number of ways and we could not see the feature working. Maybe everything is still being released gradually and is not yet available to all users what is wrong, since it is in the official release notes of the new version, but

According to WABetaInfoWhatsApp version 2.18.90 minimally requires iOS 8.0 and also features a new feature to help users recognize suspicious links shared in chats.

In addition, the messenger now also has the ability to search the "Status" tab to quickly find an update. But since I doubt you have tens / hundreds of friends using this feature, you will hardly use it.

Has anyone been able to view GIFs using 3D Touch?
