WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned company is working to make new stickers that will be activated in the chat window and appear while scrolling.
As stated by Android Police:
“The feature showed up in beta v22.214.171.124 and then disappeared in v126.96.36.199. When it’s working, stickers from animated packs are live in the conversation, though they only animate once and stop. You need to scroll up or down to trigger them to play again.”
Android Police considers how the animated stickers function, and might not be complete until now. However, they will appear in your WhatsApp chats.
It would add a new option to your WhatsApp sharing options. WhatsApp has only let people add normal, static stickers in text chats, while the total functionality of WhatsApp has been limited to chats.
The application has its own Stories tool, though, Facebook has been trying other ways to add more practicality. Animated stickers might be a little element in this matter – though, it’s a step forward to WhatsApp.
Theoretically, if Facebook is about to add the messaging features of Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp, then every application will have the same tools, to emphasize that people will be able to share the same all over the three.
And definitely, the same sticker pack in the example above is available in Messenger as well.
Therefore, it’s a part of that wide messaging merge – which means that you may soon have a hill of more sticker options on Instagram DM too.
We will share with you all the next available updates.
