Currently, WhatsApp allows stickers that are basically small drawings, larger than an emoji. After the latest Beta update, Android users will see animated stickers, but these won’t be visible right after the update. WABetaInfo notes that the sticker pack update is a server side update, which means once you’ve upgraded to WhatsApp Beta 2.20.10, Stickers packs will receive a server side update from WhatsApp. Users will be required to go open Chat > Stickers button > Plus icon and there they will see ‘Update‘ for all previously downloaded packs.

There is no word on when animated stickers feature will arrive on WhatsApp. However, it seems like Facebook is waking up to competition from Hike and Telegram in the stickers department. The sticker packs are expected to vary from country to country. It is noted that developers may be able to implement animated stickers in their sticker apps.

Some of the sticker packs being planned for release include Bright Days. Playful Piyomaru, Rico’s Sweet Life and Moody Foodies. We will have to wait for WhatsApp to share more information about this feature. With 5 billion installs on Android, WhatsApp is poised to strengthen its popularity with these new features.
