It had been years since WhatsApp introduced stickers to its users. Limited to the scarce options of stickers available in the message-sharing app, it allowed to incorporate other personalised stickers which can be made through third party apps. The process is long. First choosing the app which fits with your purpose to create perfect stickers with ease, plus reading long reviews and checking if the third-party app is safe to download or not. Then choosing images and uploading it to another app, cropping, adding text… and a lot more even before adding it finally to your WhatsApp application. Well, who are crazy about using stickers, won't mind employing this long process. But here is an end to it!

Meta-owned WhatsApp rolled out its new feature called WhatsApp Sticker Maker, which enables users to make their own customised stickers. It has added a feature to convert any photo into a WhatsApp sticker. Though, currently it is available only on WhatsApp Web and coming on WhatsApp's Desktop-based app for Windows and Mac for coming weeks, but can be used to design your personalised WhatsApp sticker for an occasion, festival, birthday or depending on your group chats!

WhatsApp users need to note here that to use the latest feature of the app, WhatsApp Sticker maker, you have to update the latest version of WhatsApp and the images that you will use for making stickers. Here, know the process to convert any image into your WhatsApp stickers.
