WhatsApp for Android version 2.18.366 has been spotted with new change
It also shows link previews
WhatsApp is separately found to have a new GIF search interface.
The new development works similar to how the instant messaging app started previewing a message or media you forward to two or more chats. It is initially available for WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.18.366. However, the upgraded multi-share feature is likely to hit the stable channel shortly.
WhatsApp is separately said to have built a new GIF search interface as well as a feature to let you search your favourite stickers. These features could come on a future version of WhatsApp for Android.
