The other three stickers packs are called Meep, Fox, and Baach, but many other stickers packs will be added soon. Let’s go quickly see how they look in WhatsApp for Android the Meep and Fox Stickers packs:

This feature is currently under development: it means this isn’t available yet and it will be remotely enabled in next updates.
You see in these screenshots that there is only one sticker in these stickers packs, but don’t worry: when the feature will be enabled for all users, every pack will have all stickers.


In Group Info, you can find all administrators at the top of the group participants list.
