WhatsApp stickers they work in a similar way to those of Facebook and Telegram (where they have been present for years), with a section dedicated to stickers and the possibility of adding new sticker packages.
The stickers work like emoticons and can be sent in any chat by touching a sticker icon in the selection interface that appears when you press the smiley button next to the writing box.
Like emojis, stickers also serve to convey emotions and moods without having to write words, which are also included in some stickers.
While to send the stickers it’s simple, in this article we see all the possibilities to add the most used ones to favorites, to group them and to download stickers for Whatsapp.How to send Stickers Stickers in Whatsapp (on Android, iPhone and even from Whatsapp Web).
To send stickers, touch the emoji icon next to the WhatsApp typing area.
While before there were only emojis and GIFs, now you will find the sticker icon.
You can send stickers both on individual chats and in groups.
NOTE: The Stickers are available on Android from the version 2.18.339 and on iPhone from the version 188.8.131.52
If they still don’t appear on Android, you can proceed with updating the app by downloading the installation file from the site https://www.whatsapp.com/android/.
If you want to download the Whatsapp APK file directly on your smartphone, you need to open the Android download page using Chrome and the “Request desktop site” option (which can be activated from the main menu with three dots at the top right on Chrome).
Recently used stickers are kept at hand as is the case with Emoji so that they can be found and sent quickly.
When you open the sticker panel, the recently used stickers are in the first tab at the top, with an icon that looks like a clock.
Each sticker can then be added to favorites, to create a special collection of those you like best, for easier access.
To find your favorite stickers, open the sticker panel and touch the Star icon.
To add stickers to the favorites section, touch and hold on the chosen sticker, then from the pop-up menu, tap add.

You will then be able to see the stickers with happy faces or the sad ones, the affectionate ones and the alert ones.
When multiple stickers are sent at the same time in a conversation, WhatsApp automatically groups them into pairs to save space on the chat screen.
To see the groupings of stickers you will have to close the chat and then reopen it.
As you will notice, at the beginning there is only one type of stickers available.
