Looking to find new ways to express yourself when paying back or charging your friends on Venmo? Forget about those static food and drink emoticons – what about an animated trio of jazzercising donuts to mark the occasion?
Today, we’re super excited to announce an integration with Venmo to bring animated content to its platform for the first time. Now, when you’re paying your roommates back for last night’s dinner or splitting a hotel room with your bff, you can add a little extra oomph to your payment note. You’ll be able to select from a library of custom stickers to enhance your Venmo payments and add nuance, personality, and fun.
Through our smart suggestion technology, we’ll also highlight the content we think you might like, to elevate that static plane emoji to an sunglass-clad animated character cheersing their way into first class.
As new content rolls out over the next few weeks, you’ll notice that we’re also partnering with some of your favorite brands so when you’re paying a bud for that sandwich, calling in an IOU for coffee, or want to settle the tab for the joint IKEA run, there’s even more ways to say it. We’re always working to bring more expression and excitement to digital communications and push the boundaries of messaging, and we’re thrilled to bring Venmo into our network of awesome platform partners where you can find Holler content.
We will be continually updating the Holler library with new stickers to add to your payment notes. If you have a great idea for a new sticker, we’d love to hear from you! Submit your idea or sketch to us at email@example.com and it may become a Holler animated sticker in Venmo.
With so many new and original stickers to help add your own spin on things, we expect Venmo’s social feed is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Keep an eye out for the latest version of the Venmo app on iOS or Android to start animating your payments!
