According to reports, after several months, WhatsApp has finally enabled the possibility to import custom animated sticker packs in the app. The team is currently rolling out the feature for users in India, Brazil, Iran and Indonesia, However, updating to the most recent builds (such as 2.21.40 iOS and 188.8.131.52 Android beta) can help to get the feature quickly in those countries.
"As we know we can create stickers for WhatsApp using external apps, like Sticker Maker. Sticker Maker already supports the feature to generate animated stickers, from videos and GIFs: simply download the app, create a sticker pack and pick a video or GIF from your camera roll. Sticker Maker will automatically convert it to a webp file, ready to be imported to WhatsApp," WABetaInfo wrote.
Users should note that if sticker maker isn’t able to create animated stickers, it’s not an error at your side. The developer will remotely enable the support after received the activation of animated stickers. Users might experience issues importing sticker packs that contain both static and animated stickers. A sticker pack can contain only static or animated stickers, according to WhatsApp guidelines.
A sticker pack must contain at least 3 stickers, otherwise it cannot be imported. Stickers have a certain maximum file size. Sticker Maker will help you to automatically compress the sticker, preserving its quality. According to the report, more countries will be following later: stay tuned for the next announcement.
