So the above statement has confirmed that the WhatsApp v18.104.22.168 beta for Android also enables a new type of animation for animated stickers, looping them at most 8 times. Long animated stickers i.e. stickers with a lot of frames, will loop fewer times.
The WABetaInfo has re-spotted a feature that allows users to send text messages that disappear after a set period of time. When the feature was first spotted by WABetaInfo, there were no details provided to the user. But now the latest update shows that WhatsApp might soon introduce the feature in the future updates.
