WhatsApp users can now create and update their own stickers, the messaging app has announced. WhatsApp will roll out the new feature to Android and iOS users. The new feature will be rolled out to Android users with the stable version of WhatsApp in the coming weeks, according to reports.
If you like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, you can package them in an Android or iOS app. You can publish your sticker app like any other app to the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, and users who download and install your app will be able to start sending those stickers right away from within WhatsApp, it said on its website.
To create your own sticker art, your stickers must meet the following requirements:
1.Each sticker is an image that has a transparent background.
2. Stickers must be exactly 512x512 pixels.
3. Each sticker must be less than 100 KB. See the README files associated with the sample apps for tips on reducing the file size of your stickers.
4. The users must also provide an icon that will be used to represent your sticker pack in the WhatsApp sticker picker or tray. This image should be 96x96 pixels and must be less than 50 KB.
WhatsApp has provided sample apps and code for both Android and iOS that provide a simple way for you to drop in your sticker art and build an app with only minimal development or coding experience. Advanced developers can also make richer sticker apps using the set of APIs and interfaces that WhatsApp supports, the messaging app said.
