WhatsApp Launches Support for Stickers
WhatsApp today announced that support for stickers and sticker packs is coming to its mobile apps for Android and iOS. The messaging service is initially offering stickers designed by its own staff and select artists, though it also hopes third party content creators will adopt WhatsApp stickers. WhatsApp has released a set of APIs and other interfaces that allow developers to create WhatsApp-compatible sticker apps and packs for Android and iOS. Sticker apps for WhatsApp will be published in the Google Play Store or the iTunes App Store. Once installed, WhatsApp users should be able to send stickers via the new sticker button that appears when composing messages. WhatsApp says stickers should reach most Android and iOS users over the next few weeks. WhatsApp is owned and operated by Facebook.
