"To experiment with this feature, users can tap the sticker icon in chat, navigate to the sticker tab and choose the new create option," WhatsApp news tracker stated.

However, if any user doesn't find this option, don't worry as the feature will be available to them in the coming weeks.

This is not all. The Meta-owned messenger on iOS will also have upgraded formatting options.

As mentioned by the official changelog, WhatsApp is releasing a feature to add new text formatting options for quotes, bullets, numbered lists, and inline code.

"With this enhancement, users can now further customise their text messages by highlighting important points using quotes, create organised and easy-to-follow lists with bullets and numbers, and even showcase snippets of code with inline code formatting," WABetaInfo stated.

The users can get the new features by installing the latest version of WhatsApp for iOS from the app store.
