After months of waiting, WhatsApp has finally brought stickers to iPhone and Android. iPhone users will need to update to version 2.18.100 while Android users will have to upgrade to the latest version of WhatsApp to use them. WhatsApp has decided to support Facebook Stickers packs and will support Stickers Packs submitted by third parties in future.

For iOS users, WABetaInfo revealed that

  • You need to update your WhatsApp version to the 2.18.100 iOS updates in order to remotely receive the activation of the Stickers feature.
  • Note that the activation is very slow on IOS! Android users should be immediately able to use the feature on 2.18.329.
  • If you have already updated but you don’t see the feature, please back up your chat history and reinstall WhatsApp, if you don’t want to wait more.
    Every time you reinstall WhatsApp, the most updated configurations from the server are downloaded, enabling the feature for you.
  • Seen that it’s necessary the 2.18.100 update for IOS, all iPhones having iOS 7 won’t be able to use this feature.
  • Precedent versions will not receive the feature. You need to update to the latest version available.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is rolling out for all iOS and Android users the Stickers feature, with the following 12 Stickers Packs:

Cuppy by Minseung Song, Salty by Alisa Kryzhanovska, Komo by Sanat Rath, Bibimbap Friends by Pete Ellison, Unchi & Rollie by nu1t, Shiba Inu by Aiko Kuninoi, The Maladroits by Cole Ott, Koko by Hanasake Picture Inc., Fearless and Fabulous by Ann Shen, Banana by Jayde Fish, Biscuit by Ghostbot and Hatch by Hatch.

These packs include static stickers, but in the very near future, it will be possible to get animated Stickers and a lot of Stickers Packs will be remotely added in future and the support for Windows Phone will be available later.

How To Use Stickers

To send Stickers, tap the Stickers button, located on the chat bar on IOS and on the keyboard on Android, and WhatsApp will present you the WhatsApp Store, where you can choose which Stickers Packs you want to download. All Stickers Packs are free! When you receive a Sticker, you can quickly open the Stickers Pack where it’s contained in selecting it:

There Is A Sticker Store!!

The official WhatsApp Stickers Store, where you can download, remove and manage Stickers Packs:

After downloading some Stickers Packs, you can also choose to remove them from your Stickers Library. You will be able to receive stickers you didn’t send as well.

New GIF Search Option for iOS

iOS has a new GIF option that allows to search and send GIFs directly in the chat.

This new feature, as shown in the screenshot, supports GIFs category, so you can quickly choose a GIF based on a specific category.

This feature is immediately available for IOS, and it will be enabled on Android soon. When the Stickers feature wasn’t enabled, it was necessary to open the Camera Roll in order to search GIFs on iOS: so for all iOS users two new features are available today!

If the Stickers feature is enabled on your phone, you are able to use it if you’re using the most updated WhatsApp Web version.

To be sure to use the latest WhatsApp Web update available, please clear the cache of your browser, restart it and visit WhatsApp Web again.

If Stickers don’t appear yet, you should wait a bit more, because WhatsApp is slowly rolling out this update for everyone.
