How To Make Custom WhatsApp Sticker
WhatsApp has been changed a lot since being a part of Facebook. It embraces lots of new features over time to increase the users’ satisfaction. Likewise, WhatsApp includes sticker sharing features to make the chit chat more vibrant and dynamic in its updated version 2.18 and above. Though many other Instant Messaging Apps adopt this feature years ago. But WhatsApp sticker sharing features brings up more possibility by allowing its users to create their own stickers.
