Despite the title of the world’s most popular instant messenger, WhatsApp still doesn’t have certain features, which is not the first year used in competing solutions. Soon the situation can change – in one of the beta versions of the app were seen useful option, which has long been familiar to users of the Telegram.
We are talking about animated stickers that have long been available in the Telegram. About it reported the edition androidpolice.
How it works
The ability to add animated stickers appeared in the beta version of the program number 22.214.171.124. Immediately after they are driven, but later “froze” and re-activated only when you scroll the chat window. This is probably done on purpose, to loops the animation does not distract and does not irritate users.
The animation of the stickers are not cyclic and is repeated when you scroll the chat window
Sets of animated stickers
Earlier in WhatsApp already lit up five sets of “live” pictures: Playful Piyomaru Rico’s Sweet Life, Moody Foodies, Chummy Chum Chums and Bright Days. And add them to the programs menu will not work – the stickers can only save manually when receiving from another user.
How to test a new feature
Shortly after the start of testing, the feature was removed – experience animated stickers can only when manually setting the above “beta”.
The release date of innovation for all users, the developers of WhatsApp is not yet announced.
