WhatsApp’s development cycle is always crazy!! The IM is constantly getting new features and just recently we heard of the incoming biometric features they’ll be adding and also a dark mode that might follow. Though these features aren’t out the gate yet, one new feature that is out of the gate right now is the sticker integration.
Yep, some users can now send each other stickers just like you do with GIFS and emojis. I’m not entirely sure if this is now available to all users or just beta testers but it’s a pretty sweet feature that will make your chats a tad more interesting…
So how do you actually get to send someone a sticker? Well, that’s not too difficult either:
The stickers in all their glory!
Voila! This new feature isn’t a first and those of you who have been using Telegram or even Facebook Messenger will probably be accustomed to stickers by now. WhatsApp is obviously bigger than both of those platforms and it’s cheaper so chances are
Will you be able to send stickers using bundles?
I like sending GIFs…I like it a lot. But one thing I quickly noticed was that you can’t really search for GIFs like you would search for emojis if you’re using Econet’s WhatsApp bundles. Fortunately, stickers will kind of work like emojis which means once you have downloaded a sticker set to your phone you’ll be able to send it, even on those bundles. You can even download new stickers on those same bundles.
