Like emojis, stickers also convey emotions better than simple text. Some stickers also have text on them, so you get two benefits in one. 

WhatsApp stickers come with many features of its own. You can add them to favorites, group them, etc. You don't need to explore them on your own. We have done the work for you.

Here’s everything that you need to know about how to use WhatsApp stickers.

Note: I took screenshots using my Android phone, but the steps apply to iOS devices as well. 

1. How to Send Stickers

To send stickers, tap on the emoji icon next to the typing area of WhatsApp. Earlier you would only find emoji and GIF options here. Now next to the GIF, you will see the sticker icon. Tap on it.

Note: WhatsApp supports stickers on its app version 2.18.329+ for Android and 2.18.100+ app version for iOS. So we recommend you to update the respective.

2. View Recently Used Stickers

Similar to the emojis that have a Recently viewed section, you get one in stickers as well to see the recently used ones. When you open the sticker panel, Recently used stickers is the first tab at the top. The icon looks like a clock.

4. View Stickers Based on Emotions

Just next to the Favorites icon, you have the Heart box icon. Here you will find sticker categories based on the emojis present in the stickers. You have sections like heart, sad, happy, etc. For instance, in the happy section, you get stickers with a happy face.

9. Reorder Sticker Packs

If you have downloaded several sticker packs, all of them will be available for you to use. You can arrange them in the order of your preference. 

To do so, under the My Stickers section, hold and drag the stickers using the Move (four-line) icon to change their order. Once you change the order, it will immediately reflect on the main sticker screen.

10. Delete Sticker Packs

Don’t like a certain sticker pack? Just trash it. To do so, go to My Stickers section and tap on the Delete icon next to the pack that you want to delete. While you are at deleting things, here's how to delete a WhatsApp group permanently.

Is It Necessary to Install All Sticker Packs?

No. Only if you want to send stickers from a particular sticker pack, you have to download it. Otherwise, to view stickers, you don’t have to install that particular sticker pack. In other words, you can view all the received stickers without downloading their sticker packs.

What More to Expect

Currently, WhatsApp doesn't support animated or motion stickers. It also doesn't support third-party sticker packs. I hope they introduce these two features soon. It would be nice to download sticker packs from other chat apps like Hike app and use it on WhatsApp.
