WhatsApp and the World Health Organization (WHO) have released a package of ‘stickers’ that will help people to be connected during and after the Covid-19 pandemic, which includes options to remind people to wash their hands or to honor healthcare personnel.
The ‘Together at Home’ sticker set is now available on WhatsApp and includes some texts translated in nine languages (Arabic, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish).
Every day millions of stickers are sent on WhatsApp, helping people to share their thoughts without having to write a single word.
Since they presented this option more than a year ago, stickers have become one of the fastest growing forms of communication on this platform.
WhatsApp, who claims to be delighted to work with the WHO to present this package of ‘stickers’, points out that these can be a “fun, educational and universal tool that overcomes barriers such as language or age, among others.”
“We hope that people will use these stickers to keep in touch with loved ones, especially those who feel isolated, alone, and afraid.”
This new bundle offers creative ways to remind people to wash their hands, keep their distance, or exercise, while allowing users to honor the health heroes and individual heroes everyone has in their lives.
