And WhatsApp is offering yet another interesting option for the public that likes to use stickers in the messenger. The new beta version of the app is bringing the format of animated images, giving even more fun to chat, whether in private or in groups.
This feature is not big news for those who are always connected on social networks, as Telegram added the functionality of sharing animated stickers since July last year, showing Facebook that it was possible to give a little more animation to this type of element.
According to WABetaInfo, this novelty can be used by users with beta versions 126.96.36.199 for Android and 188.8.131.52 on iOS, or other later options. This new way of inserting animated figures is divided into three categories: the first allows you to view and save contact stickers, the second is based on packages created in third-party applications, and the last download directly from the WhatsApp Store.
It is worth remembering that iPhone users or Samsung and Xiaomi mobile phones compatible with the creation of animated stickers may have an advantage over this update, since these brands allow characters customized according to the user’s face to be created, making the reactions on WhatsApp are even more interesting, if compatible.
There is still no expected arrival in the stable version of the app, but it is good to keep an eye on the next official updates on the Play Store and App Store.
