WhatsApp is taking the sticker game to the next level with the introduction of a custom sticker maker exclusively for iOS 17 users and above. This innovative feature empowers users to go beyond the usual drag-and-drop method by allowing them to draw on images, add text, or layer additional stickers to create truly unique and personalized stickers.
To craft your sticker masterpiece, simply open the app's sticker tray, select "create sticker," and choose an image from your gallery. From there, the customization possibilities are endless – pick a cutout, add text, and get creative with drawings. Already made stickers can be edited by long-pressing on the sticker in the tray and selecting "edit sticker."
While WhatsApp for the web already offers a sticker-making tool, having the ability to customize stickers directly within the mobile app adds practicality to the creative process. The only limitation is that users with devices running on iOS versions older than 17 can only edit existing stickers.
For Android users, the ability to create custom stickers is currently limited, but they can still enjoy viewing and reacting to these personalized expressions. WhatsApp's move towards enhancing sticker capabilities reflects its commitment to providing users with engaging and creative communication tools. Elevate your chat experience by unleashing your artistic side with WhatsApp's custom sticker maker.
