WhatsApp Sticker

With the recent updates, WhatsApp Messenger which is now part of Facebook Inc. has released a set of new features to both the iOS and Android realm for their users. After the big hit on right swipe feature for instant message replies, WhatsApp has recently released Sticker feature on 5th November 2018, right before the Festive Season in India. This was one of the mass releases launched by WhatsApp, targeting more than One Billion Android users. With established instant messaging competitors like Hike Messenger and Viber who started with the motive of allowing users to send a predefined set of stickers created by them along with letting the users talk with one another, WhatsApp has not only provided the feature of sending stickers but also has developed an innovative way wherein a user can create stickers.
