    WhatsApp rolled out animated stickers along with a bunch of other features earlier this month. WhatsApp animated stickers are available on its Android and iOS apps.

    WhatsApp has quite a few animated sticker packs that users can download and send on chats. One thing that was missing in WhatsApp’s animated stickers was the ability to play on loop. Telegram users will be well aware that animated stickers play on loop on this messaging app. On WhatsApp however, the animated sticker plays only once when you send it and you have to scroll up or down for it to play again.

    But it looks like WhatsApp is working on bringing infinite loop play to its animated stickers. In a video shared by WABetaInfo, an animated sticker on WhatsApp is playing on loop. There’s no confirmation yet on when this update will arrive on WhatsApp.

    This may not seem like a major feature but it’s important as it deals with the whole purpose of sending an animated sticker. If the sticker remains static then it doesn’t make much of a difference between this and a normal sticker.

    WhatsApp’s animated sticker packs can be found in the same sticker tab. Users can download these sticker packs and add them to their favourites as well. The animated stickers have a play icon on top for users to preview them. This also helps in differentiating which stickers are animated. The animated sticker packs on WhatsApp include ‘Chummy Chum Chums’, ‘Rico’s Sweet Life’, ‘Playful Piyomaru’, ‘Bright Days’, ‘Moody Foodies’ and more.
