Telegram rolling out Sticker Editor, 16 more new features on the way!

Telegram Edit Sticker

Telegram announced the launch of a powerful Sticker Editor feature. This upgrade allows all Telegram users to create their own stickers without the requirement of any other application.

According to Telegram, the new Sticker Editor feature allows users the ability to quickly create stickers and entire sticker sets. All this will be done within Telegram – you don’t have to even switch the application.

Notably, WhatsApp recently released a custom sticker creator feature for customers. A step ahead, Telegram introduced an even more powerful variant of the sticker creator to stand apart.

To create a sticker, you just have to take an image from your phone’s Gallery. Once picked, a single tap will make a cutout for you, making it easier to add text, drawings or stickers, emojis, and GIFs that exist on Telegram.

  • How to create: To start making stickers, open the sticker panel from your input field in any chat, then tap the inviting (+) button.

Once made, you can also create the sticker to a set, which is not possible in WhatsApp. To do so, choose the emojis that describe its emotion, however, you will also get AI-based suggestions that suit your sticker.

When you type an emoji in the chat, you will get your own sticker in the suggested section. You will also be able to share your sticker set, the same way you currently do, just send any of the stickers to the recipient, and voila!

Telegram will be launching 16 more new features this month. The platform hasn’t shared any additional details about the changes, however, we expect most of the features to be available for all, rather than Premium exclusivity.
