How to find messages faster on your iPhone with this

WhatsApp for iPhone makes it easier to create your own stickers

As a user of WhatsApp, you probably already know that you can send stickers to your friends. If you haven’t already, you’ve probably already received them once. That’s nice and all, but until now it was quite a thing to make those stickers. But fortunately, that has now changed on your iPhone.

Before, in fact, you had to use a third-party service when you wanted to create a sticker. That’s a detour not every user is willing to take. But now an update for WhatsApp on iPhone is available, which completely solves the problem for all sticker fans among us.

The news first came out via WABetaInfo. But not to worry, the option is not only available to beta testers. Anyone with an iPhone can now get the required update through the App Store. To easily create stickers yourself, you need to download and install version 23.3.77.

While it is good news that this functionality is now built directly into WhatsApp, the process of creating stickers may not make sense to everyone. For this, the app uses the iOS 16 feature that can cut the subject right out of a photo. You then have to know exactly how that works your iPhone, of course.

This is how to make your own stickers

Create your own stickers with WhatsApp? Then proceed as follows.

Open the Photos app on your iPhone and choose a photo you want to make a sticker out of.
Pick the subject (the object or person), tap on the photo and hold your thumb or finger on the screen for a moment.
Drag and drop that subject into a WhatsApp conversation.
WhatsApp then asks if you want to make this a sticker; confirm your choice.

The stickers you create will be stored in your personal sticker collection. Remember that this option is only available for those with an iPhone running iOS 16 or higher, as previous iOS versions do not have this cut and paste functionality.
