WhatsApp which is owned by Facebook is finally bringing the stickers to make conversation even more fun. iOS and Android will allow the use of stickers not only from in-house pack but also third-party in coming weeks.

WhatsApp said in a statement as
"Whether with a smiling teacup or a crying broken heart, stickers help you share your feelings in a way that you can't always express with words. To start, we're launching sticker packs created by our designers at WhatsApp and a selection of stickers from other artists,"

For third-party sticker app creators, WhatsApp will offer a set of APIs and interfaces that allow them to build sticker apps that add stickers to WhatsApp on Android or iOS.

They can publish their sticker app on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, and users who download and install the app will be able to start sending those stickers right from within WhatsApp.

It has laid down some rules for the sticker app developers some include, each sticker should be an image that has a transparent background. Stickers must be exactly 512x512 pixels and each sticker must be less than 100 KB. For more information, users can go here.
