WhatsApp Animated Stickers Found In Rooted Smartphone
WhatsApp has been developing dark mode feature for many months, but it still cannot be proven easily. The same thing is happening with animated stickers. Still, there are ways to access them. Today, MyFirstAndroid Team has just done with it.
Animated Stickers Inside WhatsApp
WhatsApp chose to include only selected stickers while opening the door to download more packages from the Google Play Store. And with the animated stickers, it has done the same. There are currently five packages available in the WhatsApp’s own sticker store. To activate them, you need ROOT access, the same happens with the dark mode.
To take advantage, we had rooted a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus to check how the new animated stickers looked. As confirmed by WaBetaInfo, WhatsApp has updated its store and some of the sticker packs included. They are of good quality, the animations are fluid, and they look really good in chats. Everything indicates that development is not too far from being completed.
Animated stickers do not differ much with respect to ‘normal’ stickers beyond animation. They can only be seen on the phone that has the function in development, at least for now. In addition to including different packs, WhatsApp will open the door for other developers to create animated sticker packs and hang them in the Google Play Store. There is still no compatible one, but it’s all a matter of time.
It is not yet possible to access animated stickers unless you have ROOT access on your phone and modify the WhatsApp files. We hope WhatsApp will soon release the features to beta testers.
