The WhatsApp messaging service has become a much more enjoyable place with stickers, the stickers that you can make with any image or meme you find. However, this has jumped to a new level with animated stickers.
Recently added, these new tools are here to stay, although not everyone knows how to do them. For this reason, this time we bring you a simple, but somewhat long, tutorial so you can create your own animated stickers.
How do I make animated stickers for WhatsApp? We explain step by step
The first thing you have to do is, from your cell phone (to speed up the process), enter giphy.com, a web image repository on the internet. Here we will go directly to the stickers section.
Do the process with three more images because this is the minimum necessary to upload a sticker pack to WhatsApp.
After this step, you will need a page to convert GIF files to WEBP.
In this link, we must upload the downloaded file to convert it. IMPORTANT: before starting the conversion, it will be necessary to modify the sizes to 512 x 512 pixels, the limit resolution for animated stickers.
Then proceed to convert and download it. You can make up to three conversions at the same time without an account and, if you log in, you can download up to 10 conversions at the same time.
Later, as the last step, you will require the application of a converter for stickers to WhatsApp.In this case, we will use Animada Stickers Maker.
In the app, we can download ready-made sticker packages, but we can also make our own. We just have to add our WEBPs and that’s it. With a minimum of 3, we can transfer them to WhatsApp and use them in our messages.
First, we must make our own folder (but that can also be shared) and start uploading the files that we have converted.
Ready! To enjoy.
A month ago we told you that the beta of WhatsApp for iOS had begun to offer the expected animated stickers, some icons in the form of stickers that had been available in the messaging app for a long time, but now they release animation to make them much more attractive.
And now yes, while until now this option was available only to the privileged few, now we can download and send them with the beta version of the messaging app on Android and iOS. As you know, there are more beta WhatsApp users on Android, so system users will be able to use these animated stickers immediately. The platform has done everything possible to update itself and provide new functionalities that adapt to user needs.
WhatsApp has stepped on the accelerator with its updates
Previously, WhatsApp was limited to exchanging text and images, now it is possible to share GIFs, videos, emojis and many other interactive resources. However, one of the most anticipated features is the ability to send animated stickers through the application.
WhatsApp launched sticker packs, but the time has come to make your own personal creations to impress and laugh with your friends.
