In a world where emojis are the favorite communication tool, custom emojis are the super trend. We love being creative in the convos and answer a message with a unique emoji.

2. Get a sticker app
Once you have your pet emojis that are eligible for WhatsApp stickers, save them in your phone gallery. Now you need a third party app in order to import them as stickers into WhatsApp. There are tons available for free that follow a similar pattern. Some samples: Android: Download and install the latest version of Personal Stickers for WhatsApp, iOS :Download and install Sticker Maker from the App Store.
3. Upload the emojis
Follow the instructions of the app you just downloaded. Usually you would upload the emojis from your Photo Library and select the emojis or stickers that you want to include in your sticker pack and, provide a name for it. After that there should be an option to import the pack to WhatsApp
4. Import to WhatsApp
Once the import is complete, you should find the newly added sticker packs in WhatsApp. In WhatsApp, open a chat, tap on the emoji icon in the bottom-left corner and select the Sticker tab. The newly imported stickers should be available for sending. Just tap on a particular sticker to send it to the chat. The selected sticker will be sent to the chosen contact or group.
- Open any individual chat or group.
- Next to the text input field, tap Emoji > Stickers.
All the additional WhatsApp stickers added externally are stored locally on your phone and aren’t currently backed up on WhatsApp servers. If you log in to WhatsApp on a different device, you’ll lose access to all custom stickers.
Moreover, even if you just move the original sticker files out of the Download directory and place them in any other location, you’ll still lose access to those custom stickers.
The same sticker packs that you created for WhatsApp, can usually also be used in the Messages app. Just open an iMessage chat on your iPhone and scroll through the available iMessage apps, till you find one of the third-party sticker apps that you’ve installed. When you click on the same, the stickers or packs that you create using the particular app should also be available here.
