    WhatsApp users often use stickers when talking to friends or family. Ever since the platform introduced the feature, people had to rely on third-party apps like if they wanted to add stickers to the instant messaging app.

    But all of that might soon change, with a recent report by WABetaInfo suggesting that WhatsApp developers are working on a new sticker maker tool. The upcoming feature will let users convert an image to a sticker. It uses iOS 16 APIs to extract a subject from an image and automatically convert it into a sticker.

    The ‘New Sticker’ option is located within the chat share action sheet and will allow users to choose an image from their library and convert it into a sticker. This is really handy since users will no longer have to download and rely on third-party apps if they want to use new stickers.

    The sticker maker tool is currently available for those on WhatsApp beta for iOS, but it is still unclear if and when the functionality will make it to the stable version of the app.

    Earlier this month, WhatsApp rolled out a privacy-focused feature that lets users lock specified chats and report inappropriate messages on group chats and silence calls from unknown numbers.
