Recently, it was reported that WhatsApp is working on rolling out animated stickers to its platform. According to a report by WABetaInfo, the social media channel that tracks the changes and upcoming features on WhatsApp, the animated stickers feature is not yet available but is being tested on multiple operating system versions — Android, iOS and Web.
As per the report, these animated stickers will be included in a stickers pack. “We can say the feature works very well, the support will be for third parties stickers too and it shouldn’t take a long time to be released for everyone,” said WABetaInfo.
