WhatsApp has always been a versatile messaging service. While some use it for work, others use it to connect with friends and have a great time. To make the communication more expressive, WhatsApp has introduced different features to complement the existing array of emoji. One such recent feature is the WhatsApp stickers. Similar to the emoji, they can be used to display how one feels. The added fun comes from the fact that you can make your own custom stickers that may involve an image of yourself or your friends.
In the event that you need to backup them, you will need to export WhatsApp stickers to your computer or another device.
