WhatsApp for iPhone gets a range of new features. Although these are no major features, but are definitely the ones to make chats more interesting and interactive. WhatsApp for iPhone’s new version 2.18.30 brings Instagram like location and time stickers to be added to photo or videos. In addition, the new update also brings along the option to search a certain members of a group.
The new time and location stickers that WhatsApp for iPhone gets is much like what we have already seen on Instagram and also Snapchat for a while now. To give a background, Instagram lets you add time and location stickers along with other interesting stickers to photos and videos that you share as Instagram stories which vanish after 24 hours. This makes the media file, be it a photo or a video, more interactive. Likewise is the case with the new WhatsApp for iPhone time and location stickers.
This feature works, as mentioned above, much like the Instagram and Snapchat stories. As of now the time and location stickers are only available for the iPhone users, but some reports claim that WhatsApp may bring the stickers to the Android users as well. WhatsApp is rolling out the feature to the iPhone users in a phased manner, this means only a select users may have got their hands the stickers for now. In case you still haven’t got the feature, you can head to the App store and upgrade the app.
In addition to the time and location stickers, the new version 2.18.30 of WhatsApp for iPhone also brings along a search option which will let users find a group member directly from the Group Info window. This feature basically let you search for group participants and easily message them on private chat.
