In cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO), WhatsApp has launched a new sticker pack named ‘Vaccines for All.’ The sticker kit helps customers communicate and convey excitement in private about COVID-19 vaccinations more “Fun and creatively” and expresses the gratitude of medical professionals or healthcare workers who continue to work through the pandemic, the company said in a statement. WHO has made those stickers.
“The latest sticker set seeks to promote the use of vaccines and represents optimism because COVID-19 vaccines are routed all over the world,” said Andy Pattison, Team Lead, Digital Channels, WHO, in a press release. “COVID 19 vaccinations are going to be a game-changer, but we need to carry a mask, physical distance, avoid crowds, ventilation indoor space, and clean hands for the time being.”
WhatsApp said it is now trying to guarantee reliable knowledge on vaccinations from various governments and organizations. It has already worked with the WHO and other governments, including the Government of India, to create a helpline for information around COVID-19. It emerged that in the last year, users sent more than 3 billion messages through these global COVID helplines. The company also mentioned that it has withdrawn from the fees of sending messages to help with COVID-19 reliefs via its WhatsApp Business API.
Earlier, WhatsApp had the theme ‘Together at Home’ with an animated WHO sticker package. WhatsApp said this pack was one of the most common adhesive packages, and an animated form was also included. The sticker kit also includes Arabic, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish languages and is available for nine languages.
On Android and iOS versions of the app, new vaccine stickers from WhatsApp are available. By going to the sticker shop in the WhatsApp application, users can check for the sticks.
WhatsApp Update: Working on self-destructing photos (Know More)
WhatsApp is developing some new functions. The Facebook-owned messaging app rolled out a slew of new features last year, and it appears that the app will do so again this year. WhatsApp is working on self-destructing photos, according to reports. This could be similar to the feature that allows you to delete messages. The beta updates revealed hints about the upcoming feature. According to the report, if implemented, the feature would be similar to what we’ve seen on Instagram. When you turn on self-destruct mode, the picture will be removed from the chat as soon as you leave it. Users on Instagram can also choose to keep the photo in the chat and only view it once.
WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform messaging and Voice over IP (VoIP) service owned by Facebook, Inc. in the United States. It enables users to send text and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share encrypted images, documents, user locations, and other media.
