Whatsapp is testing many features inorder to safeguard users privacy and also to give them best feasibility while using their chat conversation.
Here is the latest feature that would let users post stickers in chats, something similar to what is seen in the Facebook Messenger. The news comes from WABetaInfo, a portal that keeps a track of WhatsApp and Facebook app updates.
WABetaInfo suggests that WhatsApp beta for Android v2.18.218 brings Sticker Preview onboard. Also mentioned is that when the Sticker Store has a new updated sticker pack, there will be a green dot on the ‘+’ button. Also mentioned is that the stickers feature will be coming in future for sure. However, the exact date for the roll out has not been mentioned yet. It is worth adding that the feature may not be available for all the beta users just yet.
Although the tweet shows two unreleased sticker packs, it is still debatable if WhatsApp will extract Stickers from Facebook or will have its own. Users would have to wait for the feature to rollout to all beta users and final versions to see it working.
WhatsApp will allow users to select a sticker reaction from a dedicated ‘Stickers View’. There will be a heart-shaped icon on top corner in the window, tapping on which will show you all the categories. These stickers will be spread across five major categories including LOL, Love, Sad and Wow.
