The WhatsApp Built-in sticker tool is a great way to interact with others, but there is no way to generate one straight from the app. To address this, the Meta-owned messaging platform is now developing a WhatsApp Built-in sticker tool to eliminate the requirement for third-party stickers. Here are some specifics.
WhatsApp is trying out a sticker-maker tool
WhatsApp has published an iOS beta update, version 184.108.40.206, which features a sticker creation tool incorporated into the app. According to WABetaInfo, a ‘New Sticker’ option will be beneath the conversation share sheet of a specific chat.
This option will use iOS 16’s API, which allows you to copy the subject of a picture and paste it somewhere else. A WhatsApp sticker will be created using the same capabilities. This will be combined with certain editing features (such as the ability to remove the backdrop) to produce the ideal sticker. A screenshot of the functionality in use has been posted. You can see it down below.
It is currently being tested as part of WhatsApp for iOS, but it may soon be available to Android users. A comparable feature is already available for WhatsApp’s browser and desktop editions. Many sticker packs are available for WhatsApp’s app versions, but you need help to build your own.
However, there needs to be more information on when WhatsApp’s sticker creation tool will be available to users. We may anticipate an announcement soon because it is still in the testing phase.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is trying an Android design refresh inspired by its iOS version. We may anticipate a new bottom navigation bar (the current one is at the top) and a new context message menu with drop-down menu choices such as Delete, Forward, Reply, Keep, and Info.
We will notify you when these WhatsApp features become available. So, stay tuned for additional details, and don’t forget to share your opinions on WhatsApp’s native sticker creator in the comments section below.
