WhatsApp offers the possibility to send stickers, with which you can give your conversations some extra color on top of the range of gifs and emoticons. Where do you find the best stickers? We give some tips.
Not yet familiar with stickers in Whatsapp? Then read this article, which explains not only how to download and use stickers, but also how to make them yourself.
More than ten sticker packs are already offered in Whatsapp as standard, which you can download directly, but if you want more stickers, you need separate apps for that. You download these apps from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store on your mobile or tablets and then you can import the stickers to Whatsapp within the applications. It doesn't hurt to make a selection: there are many sticker apps and many of them require you to go through commercials before you can import the stickers. Although this gets on your nerves, you only have to go through this process once. Once the stickers have been imported to Whatsapp, you no longer need the app and can safely delete it.
By the way, most sticker apps can only be found in the Google Play Store. Apple has had many sticker apps removed from the App Store because they allegedly violated the terms and conditions. For example, sticker apps are too similar and have similar content and features.
