- WhatsApp to soon make it easier to search for stickers.
- This feature is currently under development, and it’s not available to even beta testers yet.
- Using a Deep Link you can download and import them into your sticker library.
WhatsApp has been working on making your chats more expressive than ever. The company looks set to introduce a feature that lets you search for stickers automatically. The app will show you stickers from your library based on what’s typed into the chatbox thanks to the smart algorithm.
In the current test, this feature works only with stickers from WhatsApp. It isn’t compatible with third-party sticker packs. But WABetaInfo noted that the developer is working on providing support for third-party stickers as well.
WabetaInfo reported that the messaging service allows you to import and download sticker packs without visiting the WhatsApp sticker store.
WhatsApp makes it easier to add new sticker packs:
WhatsApp has also released a new COVID-19 vaccination awareness oriented-sticker pack called “Vaccines for All,” and it is available for all iOS and Android WhatsApp users.
In case you still haven’t received this sticker pack, then you can access those from this deep link- wa.me/stickerpack/VaccinesForAll. Once you open this link on your mobile phone, you will be able to preview the new sticker pack and then add it to WhatsApp by tapping on the “Download” button.
Interested users can also download stickers designed for businesses. The new deep links support the latest stable version of WhatsApp, so make sure that you are using the latest version of the messaging app. Besides, WhatsApp is also soon expected to add support for multiple devices, and a ‘Large media preview’ feature.
If you’re impatient, you can keep checking the App/Play Store every so often or simply turn on automatic app updates from your respective app store. This way, you’ll receive the update before everyone else. Just make sure your devices are set to only download updates only when connected to Wi-Fi, otherwise, you might use up your valuable data.
