It is rare not to see an emoticon, sticker or similar in a message, either to express joy, sadness, anger, etc. and also with the passage of time they are perfected to a point where we can create stickers with our own face. It all started with the software that Apple implemented in its iPhones, and that Samsung emulated for Android system.
We can already do this on any smartphone without having a terminal of these brands thanks to the applications that we have available in the Google Play Store. We even have access to stickers of all kinds, from movies, characters, animals and a long etcetera.
Let's see how to get the best out of it and download or make our own stickers.

What are stickers?
Stickers, emojis, emoticons ... There are endless drawings, cartoons and images that have been created to give messaging applications a fun and carefree touch. With them we can introduce endless emotions and actions into our conversations through drawings.
They have become popular thanks to WhatsApp, being the most used conversation application The use of these stickers has become even more widespread, but it must be said that they already existed before the white phone application on a green background made them fashionable. So much so that television reports and a multitude of articles have been dedicated to it, both in the written press and on the Internet.
As we have already said, there are a multitude of stickers and their popularity and heyday was thanks to the Japanese user. It was in Japan where they began to use them in an exaggerated way, until it was introduced in the rest of the world, and now they are an essential part of any messaging application worth its salt.
How to use them on WhatsApp?
The first stickers that WhatsApp introduced in its application were quite rudimentary, simple and perhaps of a rather poor design, but the novelty caused them to be used without remedy. The conversations were flooded with mugs with expressions, dinosaurs expressing feelings, and giant emoticons with movement.
Now we can download almost any sticker we want to use in our WhatsApp natively, that is, already implemented in the application, very easy to install.
If we click on the sticker icon, located between the emoticon and Gif, a screen will open with the preloaded stickers, then press the gear wheel next to the miniatures and you can download new models or update the available ones, from my personal opinion I think they fall short and are also somewhat boring.
However, later on we will see third-party applications to increase the family of Stickers and we will also tell you how to import those from the Telegram application, which are quite striking and very varied.
Import Telegram stickers
Obviously the first thing we are going to do is download the Telegram application, if you don't have it on your smartphone. Also, if you do not have it, I recommend that you try it a little, and you will see that it has many more functions and possibilities than WhatsApp.
Focusing on their stickers, you must use a bot (channel automatically managed by a "robot", which works with a series of commands). What you must do is click on the search button that is in the upper right, shaped like a magnifying glass.
In that section you must write @Stickerdownloadbot and the channel where we are going to download the different stickers will appear. You can see it in the following images:
Once we have done these steps, we must open Telegram in the web browser of our personal computer, access our account and look for a sticker that we like. Look at the name it has, it could be «heroes», «animals» «spidermeme» ...
We return to the Bot, the channel to download the stickers, and write the following:
http://t.me/addstickers/heroes (You can change heroes by the name that corresponds to the sticker you are looking for).
Then the bot will start searching and in a few moments it will send you the files in different formats, JPEG, PNG or WEBP.
Now we open Telegram on the phone and download the file you prefer according to its format. You already have the Telegram stickers on your mobile and you can install them on WhatsApp.
To do this you must download the app Personal stickers for WhatsApp, that will allow you to add as a sticker the ones you have in the folders of your mobile.
When you open the application, click on the "+" button and those that you downloaded previously will appear, add them by clicking on them and finally click the ok check, and it will ask you if you want to send them to WhatsApp, click on »Add» and everything is ready .
We only have to open WhatsApp and check that the stickers have been added, nothing more.
