WhatsApp has started to implement a new update for Android (beta) and iOS of its instant messaging application. Identical are the new features introduced for both versions of the application, version 2.18.329 (beta) for Android and version 2.18.100 for iOS, where WhatsApp has begun distributing the sticker function already present in the main messaging applications of the competition.
WhatsApp Stickers, widely anticipated in the last few months, have been identified in the last few hours by the always well-informed WABetaInfo. There are currently 12 different packages of stickers, similar or the same as the ones we have been using for some time on Facebook Messenger.
How to use WhatsApp Stickers
To use the stickers, simply open the keyboard in a WhatsApp chat and click on the new icon dedicated to the Stickers next to the GIF tab. The distribution of the stickers will be gradual and through a server activation decided directly by WhatsApp. In iOS, as the source code confirms, the implementation will be much slower than that of Android.
Finally, if stickers are enabled on your smartphone, you can also use them in the web version of WhatsApp.
