The 1 pack of animated stickers

WhatsApp launched the first package of animated stickers at the end of June. The function of the application was highly anticipated by both Android and iPhones users.

At first, the new sticker pack was made available to users of the beta versions of WhatsApp for both operating systems. It is currently available for the main version of the app.

The first package of animated stickers launched by WhatsApp was called Playful Piyomaru, which is still available for download in the app's official sticker catalog.

The revolution of WhatsApp stickers

Stickers for Whatsapp - All Stickers 1 The stickers for WhatsApp are a very Brazilian form of communication

The use of stickers in Whatsapp helped to revolutionize the way people communicate. According to the surveys, they are a huge success mainly among Brazilian users of the application.

It is easy to understand why, as this tool facilitates a type of communication that is typical of the Brazilian internet user: the conversation through memes. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a meme often expresses more than a thousand feelings and manages to demonstrate ideas that are much more complex than the ones we get from using emojis alone.

Until the advent of stickers, meme communication required users to have multiple images saved on their smartphones and to send them as attachments to the message, a process with many more steps that required more storage of the device.

Stickers for Whatsapp: the best apps to create them easilyWhatsApp stickers revamped the way we communicate in the app

With the arrival of the stickers, this communication became much easier, as it became possible to record all the favorite memes on the own Whatsapp, freeing up space on the device and making it easier to find them, making the flow of the conversation much easier.

Another great advantage of the stickers was the ease for users to create their own (the Showmetech he even made a guide with some apps for you to do this), which allowed internal jokes from the work crowd or school friends to be turned into their own stickers to be shared at the right time.
