The stickers feature is now rolling out to users
WhatsApp

WhatsApp recently added the ability for users to send stickers to other users in their chats. Our guide will show you how this works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the WhatsApp application on iOS. Also note, this process is slightly different on iOS and Android.

Step 1: Tap the chat you wish to send a sticker in.

Step 2: On iOS, tap the sticker icon at the bottom of the screen. On Android, tap the emoji button and then tap the sticker icon.

Step 3: If this is the first time you’re sending a sticker, you’ll need to download at least one sticker pack. Tap the “+” icon to begin this process.

Step 4: Tap the download icon next to any sticker pack you wish to download. The icon will turn into a checkmark when the sticker pack has been downloaded.

Step 5: On iOS, swipe downward on the download menu to return to the chat. On Android, tap the back arrow.

Step 6: If you’ve downloaded more than one sticker pack, tap the pack’s icon to view its stickers.

Step 7: Tap the sticker you wish to send in the chat. Note: Depending on the sticker pack, you may be able to scroll down to see more stickers you can choose from.
