Launching Stickers and Live reactions!
Use of stickers and live reactions during conversations

You must have come across situations where you might feel short of words and you wish to express your heart and mind during a conversation in just a few words. We feel it too and understand how stickers have made our life so easy these days for expressing during our conversations in Chat applications. The use of stickers is so convenient!


More important than convenience, stickers have become popular because they serve as a low-risk way of initiating a conversation with a new friend or acquaintance. If you're naturally socially awkward, stickers can also help to reduce social friction. 

Also, showing live reactions are a wonderful way of expression when you instantly want to express and cheer when you're attending a live show or hosting one. They make virtual engagement much more effective than just sending a regular simple message.


What are we waiting for? Let's get started!
