Users of WhatsApp can make messaging more enjoyable by utilising stickers and GIFs. While the platform allows users to create their own humorous GIFs by providing an integrated option, users are still reliant on third-party apps for stickers. However, WhatsApp has taken this issue seriously and has finally added a feature that allows users to make entertaining customised stickers.
Details about iPhone users may now create their own personalised stickers in WhatsApp
According to Wabetainfo, a website that analyses WhatsApp’s latest developments, the app has issued a new version that will allow users to make their own customised stickers using photographs from their device’s gallery. Nevertheless, the new version is only offered for iPhone users who have upgraded with iOS 16 and above.
According to the source, WhatsApp for iPhone version 23.3.77 secretly added the custom sticker creation option for iOS users. Anyone with iOS 16 or higher can get the update by downloading the most recent version of WhatsApp from the Apple App Store. After the update, iPhone users will be able to effortlessly turn their gallery photographs into WhatsApp stickers without the need for any third-party apps.
Nevertheless, there is a catch. Like Gifs, the method for producing stickers is not clear and you will not notice a separate option for the same. Instead, WhatsApp is employing the feature of iOS 16 API that allows users to separate a subject from an image by long-pressing and drag-and-drop actions. Users may utilise the functionality to separate the topic of their images and then drop it into any WhatsApp conversation to make a sticker.
How to Make WhatsApp Stickers on Your iPhone
Follow these methods to create personalised stickers on WhatsApp for iPhone by removing the background and dragging and dropping:
– On your iPhone, launch the Pictures app.
– After that, choose a photo and long-press it to isolate the topic from the background.
-Drag and drop the subject into any WhatsApp conversation.
– Notably, to drag and drop make sure your WhatsApp app is opened in the background while you utilise iPhone’s Pictures app.
– After dragging and dropping the image in a WhatsApp discussion, the platform will invite you to transform the subject into a sticker.
– Once made, the sticker will be saved in your WhatsApp sticker collection. The same stickers can then be used in different talks.
Please keep in mind that this functionality is presently only available for iPhone users running iOS 16 or later. If you are able to use the functionality, please be patient as WhatsApp will provide updates in the next weeks for all iPhone users running iOS 16 or higher.
