The latest buzz in the messaging world is the introduction of AI-generated stickers on WhatsApp. This groundbreaking feature uses Artificial Intelligence to let users create their own personalized stickers. While this exciting innovation is currently available to select users as part of the WhatsApp beta (version 22.214.171.124) for Android.
According to feature tracker WABetaInfo’s report, the latest update is currently accessible to a restricted group of testers.

A Sneak Peek into the Future
While the AI sticker feature is an exciting addition, it’s worth noting that the official launch date for all users is yet to be confirmed. Furthermore, the specifics of the generative AI used for creating these stickers remain undisclosed.
This innovation holds immense potential, but given the security and copyright concerns associated with generative AI, it’s important to observe how Meta addresses these challenges moving forward.
