WhatsApp has updated the App for iOS and now users can check or download any media from the on-screen notification panel. The update will show in WhatsApp’s version 2.18.80 and will also support the download of GIfs (Graphics Interchange Formats).
In addition to the media download, users can also preview the images and gifs from the notification area. WhatsApp will make this extension available to all users on iOS and Android in the next update after making suitable improvements. Recently, WhatsApp had also added the ‘forward’ tag feature and ‘suspicious links’ tag to counter fake news and misinformation.
