According to a report, WhatsApp is working on a new feature, which will suggest stickers based on the words you have written. The new feature is said to be currently under development and can be made available to both Android and iOS users. Some references to how the sticker suggestion feature might work have surfaced online. It is initially said to be limited to the native sticker collection of WhatsApp. Companies including Apple and Google already offer relevant emoji and sticker suggestions to their users.
The new feature will analyze the first word you typed in the chat bar to suggest relevant stickers, WhatsApp Beta tracker WABetaInfo Reports. The source has also provided a screenshot and a video that suggests the default sticker icon in the text box, which will flash to notify users when the sticker suggestion is available. Users will simply need to tap on the flashed sticker icon to see the suggestions, as shown in the video.
