Save your custom WhatsApp sticker

To save your custom WhatsApp stickers, launch WhatsApp on your phone, and open the chat where you sent the sticker you made (WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop, and WhatsApp app are all linked). Then, tap on the sticker and select Add to Favorites.

Creating a WhatsApp sticker is so easy that you can actually start and finish one mid-conversation if you’re that spontaneous.

However, you can take your time and create several different custom stickers in advance and save them for when you need to use them.

Like WhatsApp, Telegram also allows you to create custom stickers that you can use to spice up your chats.
