WhatsApp, the famous chat app, has announced a new application for importing animated sticker sets, available in the next 24 hours.
To start, users must upgrade WhatsApp to take advantage of the animated sticker pack import feature. Then they should have one of the several “sticker builder” applications available on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
This news was confirmed by WABetaInfo, who announced it on Twitter “I’m excited to share that WhatsApp is announcing the ability to import animated sticker packs for ALL iOS and Android users WORLDWIDE TODAY! Within 24 hours, the feature will be available on your WhatsApp edition. Enjoy submitting your animated stickers, and follow the instructions in the article “.
“TODAY, WhatsApp users in Brazil, India, and Indonesia will be able to download third-party animated sticker packs for iOS and Android. Within the next few hours, the Sticker Builder app will assist you in making animated sticker packs “The website has been updated. Users can even create their Animated Sticker pack.
This functionality has been available for a while on iOS and Android. WhatsApp now allows users to import animated images as sticker packs (via a compatible app) into the app, similar to how users can still import static images sticker packs.
How to Create an Animated Sticker Pack on WhatsApp
Go to the most popular website Giphy, and this platform allows users to create and download their GIFs.
Click on the Sticker Tab on Home Page.
Search for moving images without the Background images, and download the one that fits your mood.
The sticker, which you choose, will be downloaded in GIF format. But here is the trick, it won’t work on WhatsApp.
It would be best to change the GIF extension to WEBP, and here is the link to convert. Also, remember to keep 512 x 512 pixels before uploading the file.
Add the files to WhatsApp –> Sticker folder, and that’s it. To get to this file, go to WhatsApp –> Media and then –> WhatsApp Sticker. You can now share it with your friends quickly and easily.
