New WhatsApp Beta for Android Will Come With Animated Stickers

WhatsApp Restricted Groups

Earlier this month, we had reported about the arrival of stickers on WhatsApp. Well now, the company has pushed a new beta update which makes a bunch of new stickers available for the users. Although there aren’t a lot of new stickers, WABetainfo managed to give us our first look at a few of them from version 2.18.19 and 2.18.21.

First off, the new beta update brings animated sticker pack as well. The first sticker pack that includes animated stickers is called Dragon Clan. So just like the regular stickers, users will be able to select the animated ones and throw them inside the chat. We’re not sure if the animated stickers will have a dedicated tab or if they’ll be included along with the regular ones.

Do make a note that this feature is still in development, which means that it is not yet available for everyone. That being said, it looks like this feature will be will be remotely enabled in next updates.
