Here, I will guide you on how to make WhatsApp Stickers on Android and iPhone. After going through this post, you will be able to create funny and expressive stickers. The only condition is that you have to be creative throughout.
What are WhatsApp Stickers?
WhatsApp stickers are special graphics that you can send and receive in a WhatsApp chat. They are different than the regular images or GIFs that you receive. You can use the stickers to kick the boredom out of normal chatting. They are a fun way to express yourselves better and easily, just like emojis.
WhatsApp introduced the stickers feature in early-2019 and late-2018, depending upon the regions. Now the feature is available globally. Anyone can send and receive stickers in a WhatsApp chat. You can use the pre-built ones or create your own.
There are apps available with lots of sticker packs on the Play Store. You can download them and find wonderful stickers to use. You can even create your own stickers, combine them in an app, and upload them to Play Store.
How to Find & Use WhatsApp Stickers?
WhatsApp stickers have some default stickers available in the app. You can send them to anyone you wish. To find them, open WhatsApp, and go to anyone’s inbox. Now tap on the ‘Smiley’ icon present beside the ‘Type a message‘ box. Next, tap on the ‘Sticker’ icon present below the emojis, and next to GIF.
You will find all the stickers available on your account here. When you download and add sticker packs to your WhatsApp account, or create some custom ones, you will find them all here.
Bonus Tip: If you use Google Keyboard, then you can tap on the ‘Sticker’ icon present next to ‘GIF’ above the keys. You can find a lot of colorful and fun stickers there.
How to Make WhatsApp Stickers on Android & iPhone?
