You no longer need special characters like colon (:), semicolon (;), etc., to create smileys. Now, emotions can be expressed using emojis. If that’s not enough, we also have stickers. Apple offers a special version of stickers called memojis, where you can create personalized stickers from your phone. If you want to use memojis on WhatsApp and other apps, you’ve come to the right place.
Fortunately, iMessage stickers will not be sent as a photo but will appear as a sticker in WhatsApp. The difference between photos and sticker is that the photos are large in size and you need to upload them manually if you have disabled automatic media uploading. This is not the case with stickers. They’re small in size, faster to send, and more or less work like emojis.
Let’s see how to get memoji stickers from iMessage on WhatsApp and other apps like Telegram, Facebook Messenger, etc. We will also tell you how to use iMessage Stickers on WhatsApp on Android.
How to Get Memoji Stickers on WhatsApp and Other Apps on iOS
Step 1: First of all, you need to create your memoji sticker if you haven’t created one. To do this, open iMessage and open an existing conversation with any person or compose a new message.
Tap the sticker icon present below the input box. On the far left, tap the three-dot icon and choose New Memoji. Now create a personalized sticker as per your choice. Refer to the tips for making memojis on iPhone.
2nd step: Once you have created your memoji, open WhatsApp or any other app that supports stickers like Facebook Messenger, Telegram, etc.
Step 3: If you are using the Apple keyboard as your default keyboard, long press the globe or emoji icon at the bottom. Select the Emoji option from it.
If you’re using a third-party keyboard like SwiftKey or Gboard, switch to the native iOS keyboard. To do this, touch and hold the globe icon and select Next keyboard or it may display a language. Tap on it. Once the iOS keyboard is activated, touch and hold the same globe or emoji icon again. Choose Emoji from the menu.
Step 4: In the iOS Emoji Keyboard, navigate to the far left of the keyboard by swiping right on the keyboard. You will first see the Frequently used section for your emojis. Swipe right again and you’ll find a section containing your recent iMessage stickers. Tap the one you want to send in the WhatsApp chat.
Note: Memojis seem to be hidden if you drag incorrectly. Swipe right again on the emoji keyboard. Many people do not slide properly. So they can’t display Memoji stickers on the keyboard.
Step 5: To find and send other memojis, tap the three-dot icon at the bottom of the Frequently used memojis section.
Then you will see your collection of Memoji stickers. Tap the sticker you want to use. Here is a screenshot of how memoji stickers appear in Telegram by following the exact same steps as mentioned above. Find out how to use Telegram stickers in WhatsApp.
Fixed: Memoji stickers not available in keyboard
