WhatsApp has released a new sticker maker tool on iOS for users to create stickers from images. According to the WhatsApp tracker, WABetaInfo, the functionality is already accessible by some users in recent times. At present, the platform is launching on iOS 16, and there are no plans to introduce it to older versions. 

According to a screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, users have to extract a subject from an image and paste it within a chat to create a custom sticker.

“WhatsApp will automatically convert the image into a sticker that can be added to the user’s collection of stickers,” WABetaInfo reported.
