WhatsApp Sticker reactions feature to express Happy, Sad, Love and Wow reactions on Android
WhatsApp is gearing up to introduce a new feature for its users. As per the report of the WABetainfo, the new WhatsApp Sticker reactions feature will allow users to send stickers to other users, similar to what we have found in Facebook, Instagram and Messenger.
The latest WhatsApp Beta for Android (v2.18.189) includes four new reaction sticker packs. WhatsApp is working on tons of sticker packs at the moment, and the four amongst them will be named as reactions- Happy, Sad, Love and Wow.
These four stickers packs will also be rolled out to the users when the feature goes official, and each stickers pack will include the reaction messages accordingly. For example, if you’re Happy, then you can head over to the Happy sticker pack and send a Happy reaction to anyone you want. And there will be more than 20 stickers in a single pack, which will give users an option to send various stickers.
Like other messenger apps, sticker packs need to be downloaded and currently support categories such as Happy, Love, Sad and Wow reactions.WhatsApp stickers have reportedly been under development since version 2.18.120. Once enabled, the buttons for stickers should appear beside GIFs.
How will be the new WhatsApp Sticker reactions feature workout?
# Here is how it works for the time being. From the Stickers View, you will be able to select a Sticker by tapping the new Love icon. Ideally, each sticker has one or more reactions that you can select, but some may come with none. Apparently, there will be four reaction categories available at first: Lol, Love, Sad and Wow.
# Sticker Reactions will be downloaded separately if WhatsApp finds any available for the sticker that you want to use. Although there are only four types of reactions available for the moment, more may be added by the time the feature goes live in the Google Play Store.
# WhatsApp Sticker reactions feature will be placed beside the GIF button on the keyboard and can be accessed easily by everyone. Other sticker packs which will be included are Unchi, Rollie, Dragon Clan, Meep, Fox, Baach, Zanimaux, The Defenders and so on. There will be various other sticker packs too at the time of official launch.
#Also, WhatsApp has confirmed to create a ‘WhatsApp Stickers Store’ to help users download and manage the stickers installed on their smartphone. The Stickers Store allows a user to download or delete stickers with ease.
Again, these stickers packs are yet to be made available to the public even in the beta app as its disabled by default, but this feature should arrive soon and for now, WhatsApp has been spotted testing them internally.
