Apple releases new emoji sticker packs for iOS 10 beta users



Apple fans who love dabbling with emojis will be glad to know that the Cupertino giant has released new sticker packs for iOS 10. The four Sticker packs, namely, Classic Mac, Hands, Hearts and Smileys are available to download from the App Store. Just like Facebook Messenger, Apple will also let developers add emoji or gif packs to its iMessage via an API.

“The ability to download your own third-party sticker packs for the Messages app is a one-up for Apple’s iMessage platform and gives iPhone and iPad users a new dimension of communication with one another. Also worth noting is these stickers can also be used on the upcoming macOS Sierra operating system for Macs,” points out iDownloadBlog.

At the WWDC 2016, one of the biggest announcements from Apple was third-party integration. In terms of Messages, Apple had said that users will see rich link previews that includes artwork coming from the website. Video will play right inside the chat area. Apple went big with emojis as well. It announced bigger emoji and emoji predictions, bubble effects that will let you express yourself better and support for handwriting recognition as well.
