San Francisco, Feb 28 (IANS) Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a sticker maker tool on iOS, which will allow users to convert images into stickers.
The new feature eliminates the need for third-party applications to create stickers, reports WABetaInfo.
After extracting a subject out of an image, users just need to paste it within a chat to create a custom sticker from an image.
If the feature is available, the platform will instantly turn the image into a sticker that can be added to the user’s collection of stickers.
This tool was available to some users in the past few days, however, now it is rolling out to everyone on iOS 16.
Users now don’t have to switch between different applications or tools to create and use their own stickers.
“This definitely saves time and makes the process of creating and using custom stickers faster,” the report said.
Meanwhile, earlier this month, the messaging platform had added some new stickers to its avatar sticker pack for Android and iOS, following its announcement of the ability to create personalised avatars.
