Last year, Whatsapp introduced the new Whatsapp sticker feature, which is quite popular. According to a Whatsapp tracker, the Whatsapp sticker feature could come with Google’s popular Gboard very soon, as it is being tested with the popular keyboard app since December.
For now, if you using the Gboard app, and use the default stickers on Whatsapp, then the stickers appear as an image, that is, JPG/PNG file, whereas, the Whatsapp stickers are in WEBP file, and after integration of Whatsapp with Gboard, the stickers will appear in the fashion they should be. This will surely improve the usability of the stickers and other than this, users will be able to use more stickers other than the default stickers available.

The integration is also a thing to look for, as Gboard features ‘Minis’, the selfie stickers and Emojis Minis sticker packs which bring a long list of selfie sticker options on the virtual keyboard app. The stickers are powered by artificial intelligence, which was added to the Gboard last November.
According to WABetaInfo, Google Gboard and Whatsapp are testing the stickers feature since 12th of December and the new feature will roll out officially very soon making the sticker sharing more fun and featuring much more stickers.
For now, the Whatsapp Sticker keyboard integration is rolling out for Gboard only, whereas, we are expecting the same for the other popular keyboard app in future.
