You can now Send Stickers on WhatsApp. WhatsApp added the sticker feature to their instant messaging app not long ago and it has been going quite well so far. You can send stickers on the WhatsApp Application for Android, iOS and also on WhatsApp web.
The feature was added to version 2.18 of the WhatsApp so if you’re unable to send or receive stickers on your WhatsApp Application then you most likely have an older version of the app on your device and upgrading to a new version should fix that.
To update the WhatsApp Application, simply head to the Google Play store if you’re using an Android device and Apple App store if you’re using an iOS device. The newly added sticker feature makes it fun to chat with your WhatsApp contacts and has different varieties. Without wasting anymore if your time, let’s get started.
