With the very recent update, WhatsApp has released a new feature called WhatsApp Stickers. With this new highlight, users can create their own stickers in WhatsApp with their friends and family members. As of now, there are no apps available for iPhone users but can send the shared stickers by saving them as favorites. With that being said, only the Android users can take advantage of this new WhatsApp Sticker update.
In the case, if you don’t know about this new feature, here I’m. When you update the WhatsApp to their latest version 2.18.358, you will see a small sticker icon at the smiley icon space. When you tap on this icon, you will get a huge space where you can add new stickers from the repository. However, the predefined WhatsApp stickers are very limited. So, you need an alternate to create your own WhatsApp stickers. What if you can do with your own photos? Let me tell you more about it and how you can make and send your own photos as WhatsApp stickers.
