How to test the new WhatsApp sticker search engine
We are going to explain to you how to test and use the new WhatsApp sticker search engine, a new function that the messaging application has begun to experiment with in its beta version. The beta versions of WhatsApp on iOS do not have room for new participants, so you can only test the function with Android.
We are going to guide you step by step through the entire process, starting with signing up and downloading the beta version of WhatsApp on Android. Then, we will tell you how this new search engine works so that find the sticker you want among all the ones you have downloaded, because the search engine works only among the ones you have installed.
Try the WhatsApp sticker search engine
The first thing you have to do is sign up and download the WhatsApp beta. On iOS you need to use this Testflight link, although there are never usually free slots as they are limited betas. On Android, you have to go to the web play.google.com/apps/testing/com.whatsapp, and there click on the button Become a tester that appears on the screen to sign up.
Once you have signed up for the WhatsApp beta tester community, you can now access their trial versions. For this, you have to download the WhatsApp beta app that you have on Google Play. There, you will see that you can now see the word (beta) in parentheses, and that you can update the app if you have it installed. Click on the Update button, and the beta version will be installed on top of the normal app. If you don’t already have it installed, press the Install button.
Now, enter WhatsApp in the conversation where you want to use the sticker search engine. There, the first thing is click on the stickers icon to the left of the writing bar. Keep in mind that we are referring to the sticker system of WhatsApp itself, not the one you have on the mobile keyboard.
A screen will open in which you will see a list with all your stickers. Here, already in the beginning you will see different tabs with categories, so that you want to find a type of feeling and the corresponding stickers.
And in this same window, at the top you have the search field. In this field you can write what you want, and WhatsApp it will show you the stickers related to the word you have searched for. Keep in mind that the search engine works only with the stickers that you have installed in WhatsApp on your mobile.
