WhatsApp Rolls Out "Custom Sticker Maker" Feature

  • WhatsApp will allow users to create their own stickers within the app.
  • This feature is currently made available on WhatsApp for web and desktop versions.

WhatsApp is a regularly developing social media app that likes to keep its user base excited with certain features. While sticker packs are one of the popularly used features on the platform, users usually have to rely on third party apps to send their favorite stickers to friends. But now WhatsApp will allow users to create their own stickers within the app starting today.

The Meta-owned social app has rolled out 'Custom Sticker Maker' Feature for its users. This feature is currently made available on WhatsApp for web and desktop versions. 

The company mentioned in a press note, “I want to tell you about a super cool feature that we have just launched for the users of WhatsApp on Mac and PC. Starting today, we are really excited to introduce a new tool on WhatsApp for web and desktop that lets users create their own custom stickers.”

This is a great change, at this time users need to setup a separate sticker pack through the App Store to use the platform. The Meta-owned app has not shared any details on the availability of the custom sticker tool on the mobile platform. 

This feature is currently being released for WhatsApp Web, although it will be accessible on WhatsApp for desktop in the coming weeks. Notably, this feature enables one to crop or rotate images and even undo or redo (undo/redo) changes.

To try out the new tools of WhatsApp, users will need to update WhatsApp Web to its latest version. Here's how to use the tool and create your own stickers.

How to make custom stickers on WhatsApp
