Messaging is no longer the same where folks are always required to send texts to each other. These days we have emojis and stickers to express our feeling, and surprisingly, such options have become legit ways to communicate. Now, if you use WhatsApp, you’ll realize it comes with a sticker feature. You can either use the available options or better, yet create your own.
Can stickers be created on WhatsApp desktop?
Yes, you can easily create your own stickers via the desktop version of the app. We like this because Meta in the past, only allowed basic features for the web and the desktop version of the app. But that is changing since it is even possible right now to make video and voice calls.
Creating your own stickers on WhatsApp is important for those who are tired of the old options. Some folks want to have unique stickers not found anywhere else, and as such, the best way to get these unique stickers is to create their own.
What are the requirements for custom WhatsApp stickers?
- According to Meta, each sticker must have a transparent background.
- Each sticker needs to be a size of less than 100KB.
- When it comes down to pixels, each sticker must be 512 x 512 and no more or no less.
