A report by WABetaInfo said that the noticeably larger stickers are available to only a select group of beta testers. Users who install the latest WhatsApp beta version on the Microsoft Store for Windows will be able to use large stickers.
For people who add the necessary visual effect to conversations and feel emojis don’t do justice, stickers always play an important part.
However, this is not a new update that users have to enable. WABetaInfo report stated that stickers are always sent in their larger format by default.
Earlier this year, the Meta-owned platform started allowing iPhone users to create their stickers. The feature that was quietly introduced lets users turn any of their pictures into a WhatsApp sticker.
While there isn’t an interface for the same, users can create stickers with the drag-and-drop feature.
Create your own sticker:
- Open the Photos app on iPhone
- Select a picture
- Tap and hold it and drag-and-drop into the WhatsApp conversation
- Confirm when WhatApp asks if you want this to be turned into a sticker
Last week, the messaging platform rolled out an in-app chat support feature on Windows for beta users, who can get an answer within a WhatsApp chat when they ask for help. However, users can still ask to receive support via email if they don’t want to get the response right within a chat.
The feature is helpful for users as they will be able to resolve their issues or get assistance without leaving the application by having the option to receive support within a chat.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp also rolled out new icons for communities and their linked groups on Android beta. With the new update, a megaphone icon with the community icon positioned behind it is now displayed for the community announcement group. These new changes will help users easily identify communities and their linked groups directly from the chat list.
WhatsApp has introduced a slew of features this year – from an edit option to silencing unknown callers.
