Latest WhatsApp Beta for Android Comes Hidden With Seven Facebook-Like Sticker Packs

There’s no fact denying that WhatsApp is working hard to bring Facebook’ sticker packs to the instant messaging platform. But the official rollout to users is unknown at the moment. However, the latest WhatsApp Beta versions- 2.18.19 and 2.18.21 submitted by WhatsApp to the Google Play Store comes hidden with seven sticker packs. That said, WhatsApp is yet to activate them to end users, but we have no info on when the Facebook-owned company is planning to activate them.

Spotted by WhatsApp watcher WABetaInfo, the sticker packs are Unchi, Rollie, Dragon Clan, Meep, Fox, Baach, Zanimaux, and The Defenders. In the earlier WhatsApp beta versions, there were only a couple of stickers supported- Unchi and Rollie, but the recent beta updates include all the sticker packs.

As stated, WhatsApp is yet to enable the stickers feature, which as per WABetaInfo will be enabled remotely in the future. These are animated stickers, meaning each sticker will have a small animation like GIFs to enhance the user experience.

Another feature added in the same beta versions is users can find all the administrators at the top of the group participants list in the Group Info. Recently, WhatsApp also rolled out a group-specific feature dubbed as ‘Delete as Admin,’ which allows a fellow group admin to revoke admin access of another admin without removing the person from the group.

WhatsApp is actively adding new features to the platform, enhancing the user experience. Addition of stickers will further allow users to interact in a new way, but at the moment, it’s unknown how many stickers pack will be made available to the users at the launch. The WhatsApp Stickers will go live for beta users for Android first and will be rolled out to all the Android users. There’s no info on the feature roll out to the iOS and Windows Phone users.
