Skype-owned mobile messaging companyGroupMe has expanded its sources of income after becoming the latest service to embrace paid stickers.

‘Premium emoji’ packs are initially for GroupMe for iOS only and include: ‘most wanted’ and South Park and, interestingly, dedicated designs for the University of Alabama and the University of Texas.

There’s no formal sticker shop, but the paid-for emoji can be found in the emoticon tray within the chat conversation window.
