Christmas is just around the corner and to make the festival more happening WhatsApp has launched a dedicated Christmas sticker pack. WhatsApp had rolled out an enhanced sticker feature earlier in December and new animated sticker packs. On the occasion of Christmas, WhatsApp has made it easier for its users to send out wishes using stickers.
"While our favorite Christmas rituals will likely stay the same (quality family time, indulging in our favourite plum cakes, having mulled wine and decorating the house) this year's festivities come with a bit of a twist. As all of us, resort to minimal or no travel this festive season, people may find themselves away from their loved ones. Good thing that with WhatsApp, physical distances never translate into emotional distances. Stickers on WhatsApp do a great job at expressing our emotions. We're here to make sure that this period of physical distancing doesn't put a bump in your Christmas festivities!," WhatsApp said in a statement.
The Christmas sticker pack has been launched. Here is how you can download them and send it to your friends and families.
