How to Edit Stickers on WhatsApp [Android and iPhone]

WhatsApp is one of the feature-rich messaging platforms and a good solution for conversation between Android and iOS devices. Meta, the company behind WhatsApp, is adding new features to WhatsApp almost every month. One of the recent new features is the ability to create new stickers. And now users can also edit Stickers on WhatsApp without using any third party apps.

The feature to create stickers was first rolled out to iOS devices, but is now slowly rolling out to Android devices as well. We have already shared the steps to create stickers in WhatsApp using images. And here we will specifically talk about editing stickers in WhatsApp.

WhatsApp has had Sticker support through various available sticker packs for a long time. But to use these stickers, first you need to download the pack and then you have to browse through many of them to find some good ones. So it’s amazing to have the option to create our own sticker. This way we can create stickers of our own choice.
