As first reported through WABetaInfo, the feature went live on WhatsApp beta version 188.8.131.52 for Android and version 184.108.40.206 for iOS. However, next beta updates immediately removed the feature, at the least on Android.
The current implementation of WhatsApp animated stickers is nowhere as state-of-the-art as Telegram’s one. For starters, the stickers don’t loop. Hence, it simply animates once and goes lower back to its static self.
You will have to scroll up or down again if you want to peer the stickers animate again. For now, we can’t make sure if that conduct is intentional or a bug on the way to get fixed in future updates.
Going via AndroidPolice‘s report, WhatsApp will have at the least five proper animated sticker packs namely Playful Piyomaru, Rico’s Sweet Life, Moody Foodies, Chummy Chum Chums, and Bright Days.
When I attempted to upgrade from WhatsApp beta version 220.127.116.11 that I formerly had, to version 18.104.22.168 via APKMirror, it showed an error. I got the same bring about a fresh installation as well. But, I was capable of install version 22.214.171.124 beta from the same website however unfortunately, that version doesn’t hold up animated stickers.
