WhatsApp Stickers is the latest feature from the Facebook-owned app and while it has been an instant hit among Android and iOS users, the stickers allow users to send special stickers within their chats in order to express themselves in a better way.
I have an Android phone so in this blog post, I’ll share the steps to get the sticker feature in Android device. Although some users have got the feature enabled automatically, some might have to do it manually.
- WhatsApp users can now create their own custom sticker packs and send them to friends and family. This feature has become popular quickly.
- WhatsApp has introduced a sticker category option which allows users to search for a sticker from a specific category.
- Android users will be able to use the feature simply by tapping on the keyboard and selecting the sticker of their choice from the sticker pack from the WhatsApp store.
The problem with the Android update
For some users, the stickers got automatically enables with a new update but in my case, there was no update for WhatsApp on the Google Play. It told me that I had an updated version but I wasn’t getting the sticker feature. If this is the case, you have to download the APK manually and update WhatsApp.
