WhatsApp has got support for animated stickers for users on all the platforms, i.e Desktop, Android, iOS.
WhatsApp is always late when it comes to rolling out new features. The update that users have been waiting for is animated stickers.
Last month, WhatsApp was testing animated stickers. The feature briefly showed up on WhatsApp beta for both iOS version 126.96.36.199, as well as Android version 188.8.131.52, but then quickly disappeared in the next version.
This time the company has announced the update on Twitter. It will certainly be in the hands of users

To access the animated stickers:
Go to the stickers pane.
Click on the plus(+)sign to go to the stickers download tab.
Download the sticker packs with a play button next to them.
Users have to download the animated stickers pack on phone to use them on the computer. The sticker packs cannot be accessed on the WhatsApp web and desktop yet.
The stickers don’t loop like on Facebook or Telegram Messengers, neither are they activated by taping. You have to scroll to activate them, something that will probably be fixed in a future update.
The sticker packs are pretty limited. But this will change after WhatsApp rolls out support for third-party developers to make and add their sticker packs to WhatsApp.
