WhatsApp is an ever-evolving social media app that likes to keep its user base excited with some quirky features. While stickers 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 that is changing, as WhatsApp will allow users the ability to create their own stickers within the app starting today.
The Meta-owned social app quietly rolled out a ‘custom sticker maker’ for its users. The feature has been currently made available on WhatsApp for Web and Desktop versions.
“Wanted to let you know about a super cool feature we’ve just launched for 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 allows users to make their own custom stickers,” the company mentioned in a press note.
It’s a welcoming change, given users at the moment require installing stickers packs separately via the App Store to use in the platform. The Meta-owned app hasn’t shared any specifics on the availability of the custom sticker tool on mobile platforms. The feature is currently rolling out for WhatsApp Web, however, one will be able to access it on WhatsApp for Desktop in the coming week. Notably, the feature enables snipping out images accurately, crop or rotate, and even undo or redo changes. WhatsApp notes that to try the new tool, users will have to update WhatsApp Web to its latest version. Here’s how to use the tool and create your own stickers-
