Home Social Media WeChat How To Get Stickers in WeChat
It’s amazing that something as simple as a digital sticker on a social media platform could become so popular. They aren’t quite on the same level as emoji but are certainly used almost as much by certain demographics. If you want to know how to get stickers in WeChat to use in your own conversations, this tutorial is for you!
Stickers work just like their analog equivalent. Rather than peeling the back and sticking them to something, here you attach them to a chat, post or Moment in WeChat. Other social networks use them so why not WeChat?
As WeChat is aimed at teens and tweens in the west, it is this market that is most likely to use a sticker in their posts. There are some available as standard in WeChat and you can acquire others or even make them if that’s your thing.
You will already have access to stickers in WeChat. Some are included within the app for you to choose when putting together your comment. You will find stickers beside the heart icon on the selection bar along with emoji. If you have some, you will find them there along with any GIFs or other media you have loaded into WeChat.
To get new stickers, you could try one of these methods:
Use the power of social media to collect new stickers to use in your own chats. Save any stickers sent to you or added to group chats to grow your collection. It’s the simplest way to add new stickers to WeChat. All you need to do is press and hold any sticker you want to save and select Add to Stickers from the popup menu. That sticker will be saved and will be accessible from the face next to the heart icon.
WeChat regularly publishes new stickers to use in the app and are mostly free. You can access the sticker store from within a chat.
There are a bunch of third party apps for both Android and iOS that offer stickers you can add to WeChat. Some of them are actually very good while others aren’t quite so good. Either way, check your relevant app store for sticker apps and install any you like the look of and have good reviews.
Another way to get stickers for WeChat is to create your own. It takes a little effort but works well and offers the opportunity to be completely original. You can use a GIF from anywhere but repositories like Giphy are a logical choice.
GIFMaker is a useful site for resizing GIFs. You can select any size, upload your GIF, hit Resize GIF and you’re good to go.
A couple of people I know who do this said it is much easier to create your stickers on a computer and use WeChat Web to transfer them.
You can transfer music, video, stickers and general files this way so if you’re into WeChat, this is definitely something you want to get used to doing. You can then access your new sticker in the usual way.
If you’re really talented, you could try out for WeChat’s sticker submission program. This is where you create a sticker, submit it to WeChat and they consider it for inclusion within the WeChat sticker store or the app in general. You will need to speak Chinese to make head or tail of the website but this is apparently a legit offer open to anyone with graphic design skills.
That’s how to get stickers in WeChat. Know of any other ways to get them? Can you suggest any good sources for stickers or apps that have good ones? Tell us below if you do!
