WhatsApp is rolling out a feature that will allow users to create their own customized animated stickers. The feature is said to be rolling out in Brazil, India and Indonesia.
A report by WhatsApp feature tracker, WABetaInfo mentions a third party app called 'Sticker Maker' which will allow users to create static and animated sticker packs to be imported to WhatsApp which can then be sent to contacts.
“You can start using the Sticker Maker app to create your own custom animated stickers for WhatsApp on iOS and Android, in Brazil, India and Indonesia,” said the website WABetaInfo.

Moreover, the process to create and import an animated sticker pack is mostly the same as it was with static stickers.
To use the feature, users just need to download the app to create a sticker pack by picking a video or GIF from the camera roll after which the app will automatically convert it to a webpage file that can be imported into WhatsApp.
