Meta-owned WhatsApp’s web version has been updated with a new built-in Sticker Maker feature, which enables user to transform normal images from their computer into stickers that can be sent via the messaging service. The latest built-in Sticker Maker feature is next coming to its Desktop apps in the next week.
Users Can Now Convert Pictures into Stickers Using the Latest Built-in Sticker Maker Feature
To access the feature, users can click the paperclip (attachments) icon, select Sticker, and then pick a picture to upload. Furthermore, once uploaded, pictures can be edited to convert them into the perfect sticker. A frame can be drawn around a picture’s subject to cut out the background, and pictures can further be cropped (though always in a square aspect ratio). Emoji, text, and added WhatsApp stickers can also be layered on top of the sticker creations.
The concept of creating your own stickers on WhatsApp is nothing new, and there is a complete range of third-party applications available on iOS and Android dedicated to the task. However, the built-in Sticker Maker feature is very convenient having it built directly into the service’s desktop and web versions, especially since they let users edit pictures with the precision of a mouse pointer.
The Extension of the Limit to Delete a Message
In addition to this, WABetaInfo has also announced news concerning WhatsApp for Desktop stating that the app is preparing to increase the limit to delete a message. As of now, users can delete messages for everyone in a conversation within 1 hour, 8 minutes, and 16 seconds. The company intends to change the time limit to seven days and eight minutes in a future update. Since this feature is still under development, WhatsApp can change its intention about increasing or restricting the ability of users to delete older texts.
