WhatsApp Will Introduce This New Animated Sticker Feature Gradually
Not satisfied with the huge amount of ‘stickers’ available, WhatsApp appears to be preparing to launch animated ‘stickers’ in the messaging app.
It is the website WABetaInfo, which indicates that these animated ‘stickers’ have started to be tested in the latest beta version of the messaging app for Andorid and iOS. This means that WhatsApp is very close to launching this new type of ‘stickers’ but it looks like support will be improved over time in WhatsApp v18.104.22.168 beta for Android and WhatsApp v22.214.171.124 beta for iPhone. Users should be on these beta variations to have the ability to take a look at the animated stickers function.
At first, WhatsApp wants to make sure that all users are able to view these ‘stickers’, followed by the availability of ‘stickers’ from third parties and then the launch of packages in the messaging app store.
