WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature to share stickers in channels, and it’s available to some beta testers. WhatsApp Beta v18.104.22.168 adds a feature to send stickers in channels. This change makes it possible to send stickers in channels, although this is still limited to some beta testers.
You can also discover this feature by updating your phone’s WhatsApp to Beta v22.214.171.124. After that, open the keyboard in your channel to see if there’s an option to pick a sticker. If the sticker tab is visible alongside the emoji keyboard, it means you can start sending stickers to your channel.
Apart from stickers, you will also be able to send animated stickers to your WhatsApp channels. Following the introduction of channels, WhatsApp continuously explores ways to enhance user experience. The ability to send stickers in channels would allow owners to better express their thoughts.
WhatsApp is also working on a feature to create a username for channels, and it will be available in a future update of the app!
