WhatsApp Stickers Feature on iOS & Android Easy to Find
It is super easy to find the Stickers feature on the WhatsApp Android and iOS app. The first step you need to take is to get into the chat where you want to use the new feature. You will then need to look for the emoji icon, which is usually next to the text field. Click on this emoji icon and you will see the options for the new Sticker feature, along with the normal GIFs and emojis. You will then see various packs that you can download.
Just download the ones you want, and the ones you end up using the most will be displayed first. There are a lot of categories to choose from, so you will have to go through there to find the ones you want. The packs themselves are from WhatsApp designers, but you can find other artists too in the collection. Third-party developers can even use the Stickers API to create their own Stickers.
The third-party developers can them publish their creations on Apple’s App Store or Google Play Store. This would allow other users to download them and use them in conversations too. We love how there are many different Sticker packs you can choose from. If you are a developer, then you will love how you can use the Stickers API to create your own, and then upload them so others can enjoy them too!
