Last year in October, WhatsApp’s stickers feature was introduced by the company and it got famous among the users within no time. To enhance more the use of stickers on the instant messaging app, the WhatsApp is now working to develop integration with third-party keyboards.
Soon You Will Find WhatsApp Sticker Integration on Gboard
It has been reported that Google’s Gboard is the first keyboard whose stickers will be integrated within this Facebook-owned app. Moreover, some other keyboard apps will also come on board shortly. The company wants to make a large number of stickers available for sharing on WhatsApp, that’s why it has taken this step.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp got the integration of keyboard stickers for Android on December 12, 2019, but the functionality with Gboard is not available right now. It has been reported that the WhatsApp is waiting for Google to complete the testing on Gboard end to flip the switch. The chatting app will be able automatically to convert stickers available on Gboard into WhatsApp compatible sticker format WebP with this new move. This new feature will also reach other third-party keyboards in near future.
Once the Whatsapp makes the integration live for Gboard users, they will see them as proper stickers.
