The sticker pack which is available in Bahasa Malaysia here can be used to say “Ayuh bersahur”, express thanks with its various “terima kasih” stickers, wish others “selamat berbuka puasa”, and more.
WhatsApp previously announced that users can look for specific stickers to be used with the Search Sticker feature.
Click on the magnifying glass icon on the left side when opening stickers. However, users will only be presented with results of stickers in their own library unlike the GIF search feature which lets users search via Giphy, an online database for short looping videos.
Other applications have also announced Ramadan-themed features for users.
Snapchat introduced Bitmoji and AR (augmented reality) lenses with Ramadan greetings and motives. The company in a press statement shared that its About Ramadan portal lens was created by Yong Nurain, the second Malaysian to be certified as an official Snapchat lens creator.
Instagram announced that it has worked with Hala Albbasi, a Bahrain-based illustrator to create three new Ramadan-themed stickers that users can apply in Stories.
Muslims in Malaysia began observing Ramadan on April 13.
