Instant messaging chat app WhatsApp is reportedly performing on rolling out animated stickers to its all platform.
According to a part by WABetaInfo, the social media channel that tracks the changes and new upcoming features on WhatsApp, the animated stickers feature is not yet available but is being tested on multiple operating system versions Android, iOS and WhatsApp Web platform.
As per the report, these animated stickers are enclosed in a very stickers pack. We can say the feature works very well, the support is for third parties stickers too and it shouldn’t take an extended time to be released for everyone, asks WABetaInfo.
To recall, Sticker support was rolled out in October 2018 for each Android and iOS users. WhatsApp offers 13 sets of Stickers as well as the pre-installed ones – Cuppy, Merry and Bright, Salty, Komo, Bibimbap Friends, Unchi & Rollie, Shiba Inu, The Maladroits, Koko, Hatch, Fearless and Fabulous, Banana and Biscuit and much more.
Android users also get a choice to download lots of stickers from Google Play Store by tapping on the ‘Get more Stickers’ option at the cheap of the list.
Currently, users will access various sticker packs in WhatsApp application once they need downloaded packs from the Google Play Store and need to go through them to pick out one.
Earlier this week, it had been reported this week that WhatsApp is performed on a new feature to prevent users from taking a Doodle UI and block screenshot of chats for Android users, by making a tradeoff between privacy and security. The power to block screenshot feature will only go live once a fingerprint authentication feature can arrive for Android users.
This means that if you have fingerprint authentication enabled, you will not be able to take screenshots of your chat windows. However, if the other person has switched off fingerprint lock then that person is able to take screenshots.
