Stickers are one of the favorite means of communication for Internet users on messaging services. And of course, WhatsApp, which is one of the most used apps in the world, has been offering it for a long time.
But now you also have the option of composing your own stickers on the messaging service, instead of just the ones included in its library. According to an article in The Verge, this new feature of WhatsApp has been released on the desktop version of the messaging service, and is expected to land on the PC app later.
How to access this creation tool?
When you open a discussion, all you have to do is click on the paperclip icon, then on “sticker”. Then you have to select an image (on your computer) to upload and once it’s done, it will appear on a small editor that will allow you to create your sticker.
You will have access to some basic functions, such as the possibility to make a clipping, or to add symbols, text, etc. before sending. This should allow you to liven up your chats with your friends at the same time, it is possible that WhatsApp will offer this feature to get more people to use the desktop version of its messaging service.
No need to have a connected smartphone anymore to use WhatsApp on a computer
While the web version for WhatsApp has been around for a long time, Meta recently made a significant improvement to the experience. Indeed, now, thanks to WhatsApp’s new multi-device, you can use the messaging service on a computer even if your smartphone is not connected to the Internet.
The multi-device, and the ability to create stickers from images stored on your computer are part of a series of new features that the messaging service has launched this year. While its competitors are more and more important, WhatsApp does not stop offering new features to its users.
Among these new features, there is also a function that allows you to transfer discussions from an iPhone to an Android, when changing devices. And it is also possible to secure backups to Google Drive or iCloud using end-to-end encryption.
