In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update, we announced a new feature available to some beta testers: sticker suggestions. With this feature, users are prompted with a new sticker tray containing some stickers related to the emoji entered into the chat bar. This enhancement simplifies the process of sharing the most appropriate sticker, ensuring a faster communication experience. After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 update, which is available on the TestFlight app, some beta testers may now experiment with the same feature!
As shown in the attached screenshot, there is a new sticker tray above the keyboard in WhatsApp. This tray displays all the stickers associated with the emoji entered in the chat bar. As we recommended in the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update, you can check if this feature is enabled for your account by simply entering an emoji in the chat text field. To do so, we recommend downloading the Cuppy sticker pack from the built-in stickers store. Once downloaded, simply type an emoji to test if the feature is available for your WhatsApp account.
We think the new sticker suggestion feature is very helpful since the number of installed stickers continues to increase over time. It can be complicated to search for a specific sticker from our large collection. However, finding the perfect sticker for any situation becomes much easier since it’s only needed to type an emoji, saving you time. Note that you may need to revise your own sticker packs by adding an emoji to each sticker from your third-party sticker maker app.
The new sticker suggestion feature is available to some beta testers that install the latest update of WhatsApp beta for iOS from the TestFlight app, and it is rolling out to even more people over the coming days.
