The Facebook-owned messaging app has excellent features that enhance the chatting experience, such as sending voice notes or destroyed images. However, there are small functions that can also be extremely useful. One of them is the possibility of searching for stickers on WhatsApp, which allow you to find the classic stickers in a faster way. Although it is not as complete as searching for emojis, it can be beneficial not to locate that sticker you want to send to react to a message.
To search for stickers on WhatsApp, first, access a conversation and click on the stickers button that appears on the right side of the text box. If you have an Android mobile, you must click on the emoji icon displayed on the left side of the screen to enter the stickers section. Next, click on the stickers button.
In both cases, the WhatsApp stickers gallery will be displayed, where all the recently used stickers will appear, those you have saved as favourites, those packs you have created, or those you have installed through WhatsApp and third-party applications. To search for a sticker, you have to click on the magnifying glass button at the bottom of the screen.
Write a mood or select an emoji to find a sticker on WhatsApp.
WhatsApp will show the search centre that allows you to find stickers by mood. The app categorizes the stickers as happy, love, sad, angry, greeting and celebration. It is also possible to search for a sticker by text or emoji. For example, if we want to find a sticker that reflects a kiss, we can search for the word “Kiss” or select the kiss emoji. WhatsApp will search for the appropriate sticker.
Unfortunately, the messaging app does not add the option to search for third-party or manually created stickers (except in some cases), even if they have a specific name. Therefore, it is only possible to find those stickers available in the WhatsApp store.
You can always create specific packs through an app and organize them in the main tab. Or, download new stickers through the WhatsApp store.
