Yesterday, WhatsApp announces a new custom sticker maker feature for WhatsApp Web users. Users on the desktop can now create their own stickers using pictures. Along with the feature to turn pictures into stickers, users can also add smileys, existing stickers, and even add texts to the self-created stickers.
WhatsApp will also get a dozen editing features. The custom sticker maker feature has been launched for Mac and PC. With the new feature, users don’t have to download third-party stickers and can create stickers using a few simple steps.
There is no clarity on when it will be available for Android or iOS users. Ensure that you are on the latest version of WhatsApp Web to use the feature right away. Once on the latest version, go to any chat where you want to send a custom sticker. Click on the attach icon in the chat bar and then opt for the sticker option.
The sticker maker option is available for group chats and individual chats both on the Web.
Here is how you can make stickers on WhatsApp
- Open WhatsApp Web, go to the chat you want to send the custom sticker to.
Click on the attach icon in the chat bar (paperclip icon) and then opt for the sticker option
Once the new Sticker option is selected via the attach button, users can select any image saved onto their computer to edit and customize. Select the photo that you want to send as a sticker, and edit it on WhatsApp using the tools offered.
WhatsApp allows you to add emojis, stickers from your sticker panel, and even add text. WhatsApp users can even draw on the image, or crop it if they desire. Options to undo and redo an edit action are also available.
Once the custom sticker is successfully edited and created, WhatsApp users can select the Send option available at the bottom right of the chat screen.
The feature is currently at its beta stage and will reportedly be rolled out to the users in the next few weeks.
The Company gives the following statement:
“Starting today, we are really excited to introduce a new tool on WhatsApp for Web and Desktop that allows users to make their own custom stickers”
