Emojis are one thing that everyone expects on a touch keyboard, but stickers – emojis more expressive cousin– arguably haven’t reached that level of cultural saturation just yet.  Microsoft appears to be grabbing the sticker bull by the colourful horns and is considering adding support for stickers in the Windows Touch keyboard.

Code has been spotted for stickers in the Windows 10 Insider builds, including support for stickers in the Microsoft Store, and cloud stickers, whatever that will mean in practice.

Microsoft already supports stickers in Swiftkey’s latest updates, but it is somewhat different to see stickers on a desktop operating system. The apps like Messenger and Telegram which you would normally paste stickers into already have their own UI for stickers on the one hand. On the other hand, Microsoft is likely betting that users in China and other sticker friendly regions will be lured by the allure of stickers on the Windows platform.
