WhatsApp Animated Stickers: Here’s how to download and send them

We recently heard that instant messaging application WhatsApp was testing out a new feature called ‘Animated Stickers’. Now the feature has come alive in WhatsApp with the latest stable update. The new animated stickers will allow users to send GIF-like moving animated stickers to their contacts.

The animated stickers are way cooler than the regular still-image stickers WhatsApp offers. Not only are they more pleasing to watch, but they might even be more expressive to the people you are sending the stickers to. Here is how you can quickly get started impressing your friends, family, and loved ones with WhatsApp stickers.
