WhatsApp for iOS to add sticker search shortcut
WhatsApp has submitted update 22.214.171.124 through the beta of TestFlight with a new search for sticker shortcuts.
It is already possible to search for stickers in WhatsApp, but with this new update, currently in beta, users will be able to find this feature more easily.
According to the reliable WABetaInfo, when entering a specific word or emoji that reflects one of the stickers in your sticker library, WhatsApp will animate the sticker button in order to alert the user that a sticker has been found .
The default WhatsApp sticker packs already support this feature, so if you have one installed, try typing specific emojis or words into the chat bar, to see if the feature is available for your WhatsApp account.
WABetaInfo says this feature might not work for third-party sticker packs, “because designers don’t often associate emojis with stickers.” Check out how the feature will work in the video below:
The team behind the app has also been working on other features, such as support for disappearance mode. When this feature is available, the user will need to go to WhatsApp settings, privacy, and then turn on the Disappearance mode feature.
Recently, in an interview with WABetaInfo, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the WhatsApp for iPad app comes after being asked about multi-device support:
Q: And… what about multi-device?
A: And yes it happens too!
Q: So, are you saying that I can really use the same WhatsApp account on multiple devices, without an active internet connection on my primary device?
A: Yes. It’s been a big technical challenge to get all of your messages and content to sync properly across all devices, even when your phone’s battery is dead, but we’ve fixed this issue and look forward to releasing it soon!
