Next stop, stickers! Looks like Windows 10 Redstone 5 could feature stickers, as a new preview build for users in the Skip Ahead ring of the program comes with an early implementation of this feature.
Microsoft is gearing up to launch Redstone 4, also known as the Spring Creators Update.
But at the same time, the software titan is also well on its way to developing some new additions for its operating system. We already know that Sets are going to be a very big part of this next major update to the OS, and now we can add stickers to the list of potential features.
And that is because a Twitter user has discovered support for stickers in the Windows 10 touch keyboard.
Support for Stickers in the Windows 10 touch keyboard is inching closer, a Store link (doesn't seem to work yet) is present in the latest Insider build 😃

Apparently, a Microsoft Store link includes a reference to a new collection that is called “Microsoft Stickers”. And though it does not point to any new content just yet, there is a chance that the company would enable the link at a later time.
When the feature is available for users, that is.
Interestingly, there is also a second string called “Get stickers from the cloud (This will send your keyboard input to Microsoft)” in this latest preview build for Insiders.
If all goes according to plan, Redmond will add a new option to the touch keyboard in Windows 10, which has been receiving a lot of improvements lately. This is a feature that is primarily designed for devices with touchscreens, but it can also be launched on PCs that have access to a hardware keyboard.
And it has evolved from a simple keyboard to one with substantially improved emoji support, as well as multilingual text prediction.
We can now probably add stickers to the mix.
