WhatsApp was working on rolling out Stickers feature for a while and they have finally rolled out this feature. WhatsApp has been a Facebook organ after its owners left the company recently, and it is worth noticing that the sticker pack contains those from Facebook Stickers. However, in future, we might expect support from third party sticker apps too.
