WhatsApp latest Beta version for Android (v2.18.189) includes new reaction stickers. 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.
According to WABetaInfo reports , WhatsApp begun testing the stickers feature on the Android app with version 2.18.120 only. The feature is disabled by default for development reasons and it will be enabled in next releases, the report notes. Whenever it arrives, the sticker button will be enabled next to the GIF button, giving users the option to send stickers as well in the future.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced at the F8:
“WhatsApp is getting support for group video calling as well. The feature is accessible in the latest Android beta updates – namely, v2.18.189, v2.18.192, and v2.18.193. Select Android beta and iOS users reportedly received the group calling functionality back in May in version 2.18.52 for iOS and version 2.18.145 for Android beta. Additionally, it is being reported that even Windows Phone has received group voice and video calling features.”
The Attractive stickers will arrive in packs, just like how we see on Messenger, and will require data for download. These sticker packs need to be downloaded only once, claims the report, and they will be segregated into four reaction categories: LOL (it seems more like Happy to us), Love, Sad, and Wow. The Sticker button can’t be seen as of now, even in the beta app as its disabled by default, but this feature should arrive soon.
