Stickers on the messaging platform are not really new, and rivals such as Hike and Telegram have this feature over the years. As support for stickers has started for all WhatsApp users in the market, the one thing missing is support for creating custom sticker packs.
According to the company’s support guidelines, users need some level coding knowledge to create a sticker pack app that other users can install. However, it seems that the issue of creating a custom sticker pack has been resolved with a third-party app with the name “sticker maker”. Other Android developers have also developed their own apps that allow users to convert their images into a sticker with selfies. These apps include “Personal Stickers for Whatsapp” and “Sticker Studio”.
We are putting a close look at “Sticker Maker” so that you can provide a step-by-step guide on creating your own sticker pack and then load them on WhatsApp.
