Popular instant messaging service WhatsApp is testing out a new feature for its app called ‘Animated Stickers’. The new animated stickers will allow users to send GIF-like moving animated stickers to their contacts.  It is currently being developed for both the Android and iOS versions of the app.


The new feature is being tested in the WhatsApp version v2.20.194.7 beta in Android and v2.20.70.26 beta for iOS. If you’re already a part of the WhatsApp beta program, you should soon see the new update along with the animated WhatsApp stickers.

As per a report by WABetainfo, the animated stickers feature can be divided into three sections. The first is the ability to send and receive animated sticker messages in WhatsApp. The second is to import animated stickers from third-party applications. The final is to directly download new animated stickers from the WhatsApp Store.

The report details that stickers in chats only animate once and the user will need to scroll up or down to trigger them again. However, the animated stickers loop indefinitely in the WhatsApp picker. WhatsApp v2.20.194.7 beta for Android can be downloaded via APK Mirror or if you are on WhatsApp beta channel via Google Play store, you will get it automatically.
