WhatsApp allowed users to use a built-in sticker maker in the browser and desktop app version, according to The Verge.
The web version has been updated with a built-in custom Sticker Maker, which lets you turn ordinary images from your computer into stickers that can be sent via the messaging service.
In order to access this feature, click the paperclip (attachments) icon, select Sticker, and then pick an image to upload. Besides WhatsApp’s web version, the feature is also coming to its Desktop apps in the next week.
Once uploaded, images can be edited to turn them into the perfect sticker. You can draw an outline around the picture’s subject to cut out the background, and you can also crop the images. Emoji, text, and additional WhatsApp stickers can also be layered on top of your sticker creations.
This feature is not new as there is a whole range of third-party apps available on iOS and Android dedicated to the task. But it’s a convenient feature to have built directly into the service’s desktop and web versions, especially since they let you edit images with the precision of a mouse pointer.
