WhatsApp To Roll Out Stickers , Security Notifications And More In Coming Updates


To be honest, I prefer Telegram to Whatsapp but the annoying thing about Telegram is that it uses up a ridiculous amount of data and it seems Whatsapp is about to borrow a leaf from its competitor.

WhatsApp is going to add something we all have been waiting for for a very very long time -

WhatsApp will now have stickers just like Facebook’s stickers and there will be a sticker store.
In Telegram, the number of stickers youcan include is infinite, since you can also create your own stickers packs. However, WhatsApp will be like Facebook: limited packs, and you have to download them through the WhatsApp Store.

Yes, WhatsApp Store. According to WABetaInfo , this will be the new platform to download them, in the same way, that on Facebook we find the Stickers Shop. I think this might actually open up a way people can earn from Whatsapp by creating and selling their own premium stickers

The stickers have been added but hidden in the latest beta of WhatsApp for Android (version 2.18.32). The first pack that is available is the Unchi and Rollie, with a doll in the form of lee with a roll of toilet paper as a companion. This pack is now available on Facebook and Messenger, so expect that all the packs that are on the social network will reach WhatsApp.

To send stickers a new icon will appear between the emoji selection and the GIFs. When clicking, you will have a tab with the recently sent ones in the first instance, while in the next one we will see the packs that we have downloaded.

When you send the stickers, they will appear with an acceptable size, similar to the one we found when we sent an emoji with an individual heart. In addition, we can receive stickers from anyone, even if we do not have the packs downloaded on our mobile. The resolution of the stickers is 255 x 255 pixels, so its size will be quite small in order to avoid much increase in mobile data consumption. We must remember that Telegram reaches up to 512 x 512 pixels (almost double).

In addition to stickers, from version 2.18.11, if you open the section Check security code and you have security notifications turned off, WhatsApp will ask you to activate it again. Finally, group administrators can also remove a user’s administrator privileges without having to throw him/her out of the conversation

Expect that and more updates in the coming months
