WhatsApp works on introducing deep links or special URL links that will open the app in a particular situation. For example, these deep links will help users easily enable label packages. The wa.me URLs reportedly work on the latest versions of iOS and Android, however it is still not clear how users can generate them. These in-depth links or special URLs act as a quick shortcut that allows users to view and import label packages.
WABetaInfo reports that these deep links work on the latest WhatsApp beta and stable updates for iOS and Android. These links will allow you to import and download a package of stickers without having to go to the WhatsApp sticker store. For example, if you want to download the newly introduced package of COVID-19 vaccination awareness labels called Vaccines for All, you can simply visit the in-depth link wa.me/stickerpack/VaccinesForAll from your Android or iOS device and you will see that the browser will open WhatsApp , showing this package of labels directly. As mentioned, there is no clarity on how these links are generated. It might be possible that only developers can create this link, but anyone can share it later. WABetaInfo says that these deep links can also be copied to your WhatsApp messages.
In-depth links will be especially useful when downloading regional label packages. These packages are available in certain countries and only for special events. They are not available for all countries, but you can download and import them from anywhere in the label library using in-depth links. WABetaInfo has shared multiple in-depth links for a multitude of regional packages like Malvibrosio & Deledina and Pictomigos available in Mexico, Cece Cenderawasih, Hantuku, Poci The Bolster Spirit, Simbok Dan Jajanan Pasar available in Indonesia, and even Cricket Matchup stickers. You can see all the depth links shared by WABetaInfo here.
A sample of these links suggests that it works in this format: https://wa.me/stickerpack/[nameofstickerpack]. WhatsApp’s new Vaccine for All sticker package brings 23 different stickers designed by the WHO. The purpose of these labels is to “express to people the joy, relief and hope they feel because of the possibilities that COVID-19 vaccines offer.”
