WhatsApp has a hidden feature that lets you share 3D GIFs in a conversation. Found in the iPhone app (iOS) and Android smartphones, the tool is ideal for playing with friends or groups. 3D GIFs create a visual illusion that simulates the effect of having objects pop out of the screen - as in the movies. The image is obtained with a trick that uses white lines and blur the background while a foreground object is highlighted on the screen.
To find the 3D images, just go to the GIFs screen and search for the term "SPLIT DEPTH GIF". We tested the function using an iPhone 7 with iOS 12 and a Moto C Plus with Android 7 (Nougat). Check out the walkthrough and see how to surprise your friends.
