Facebook Home brought over “stickers” for Messenger. Stickers are basically emoticons on steroids, they’re similar to those we have seen on other chat applications such as LINE. These large and quite funny emoticons can be sent to your friends during chats. Earlier today we posted a guide on how to enable stickers on Android, but now Facebook Messenger for Android has been updated and it comes with stickers, no need to perform any trying procedures.
To get stickers on your Android device, just update the Facebook Messenger app. The latest version is now live and can be downloaded right away from Google Play Store. To use them just open a chat dialog, tap on the smiley at the right hand side, select your desired sticker and hit send. These only work in FB chat, attempting them in SMS won’t be of any use. In the release notes Facebook mentions that the stickers feature will be available to everyone soon, initial comments from people who have downloaded the updated Messenger app reveal that stickers aren’t exactly there in the dialog box. This seems a bit odd. Are you facing a similar issue?
