WhatsApp is testing a new feature that recommends stickers based on the words being typed. A user could type the word 'love' and be presented with stickers that include hearts, etc.
First shared by WABetaInfo, the new feature isn't live for everyone yet but is instead still being beta tested. It also appears to work in much the same way you would expect it to, making it easier to find a sticker you'd like to use than ever before.
WhatsApp is developing a feature that allows to quickly search for stickers. The feature will analyze the first word typed in the chat bar and, if it matches any sticker saved in your sticker library, a suggestion will be shown.
WABetaInfo was also kind enough to share a YouTube video of sticker suggestions in action.
There is no indication of when this particular feature will be made available to the world at large, but it's currently being tested by those who are on the WhatsApp beta program. If that's you, maybe check to see whether sticker suggestions are working, or not.
