In addition to this, the Meta-owned messaging also enables users to turn their own images, that is, the images that they have clicked using their phones’ cameras into stickers. But these are some caveats to using this feature. First of all, WhatsApp’s Sticker Maker feature is not available in its Android and iOS-based apps. This feature is available only in WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp’s Desktop-based app. Apart from this, WhatsApp users cannot use its sticker maker feature to turn their images into animated stickers. This means that, while they can experiment with their images creatively, there is no way to add animation into these stickers.
