WhatsApp is reportedly working to allow users to create their own stickers. Currently, users can only send stickers with packages provided by Meta’s proprietary instant messaging platform or through third-party apps. The sticker creation feature was discovered in the beta version of WhatsApp and will likely reach the stable version of the app soon. The report speculates that there might be special tools to manipulate the sticker. Additionally, WhatsApp is reportedly working to extend the message deletion time to more than a week.
WhatsApp could soon allow users to create their own stickers from within the app, according to a report by 91Mobiles. As mentioned earlier, the new sticker creation tool was spotted in the beta test version of the app and the report speculated that it could hit the stable version of the app in the coming weeks.
The report suggests that the sticker creation feature could allow users to upload pictures to turn into a sticker. It is also reported that WhatsApp can add custom tools to make the stickers more fun. There is no information about the release of this feature yet.
Separately, the WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo reported that the instant messaging service is working to increase the time limit before a user can delete messages for everyone in the chat. As of now, users can delete messages for everyone only 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds ago. This limit is to be increased significantly in a future update – up to 7 days and 8 minutes.
According to reports, WhatsApp planned not to limit message deletion time for users. The feature is said to be still in development and there is a chance WhatsApp could change its plan before rolling it out for the stable releases.
