    First spotted by WABetaInfo, the latest update to WhatsApp beta lets users download single stickers on the app. WhatsApp beta users can update the app from Google Play Store and start using this feature. For those who wish to use this feature, and other unreleased ones can do so by enrolling into WhatsApp beta programme.

    WhatsApp offers a bunch of sticker packs on the app for users to download. Earlier, users had to download the entire sticker pack on WhatsApp. With the new feature, users can choose which stickers they like without downloading the entire sticker pack.
