How To Use Snapchat Stickers

Remember when you used to add a sticker to everything you owned? Notebooks, water bottles, cards, lunch boxes, walls, and any other blank surface you could find.

If your love for stickers has stayed just as strong, the Snapchat sticker feature has got you covered.

Quick Answer

To use the Snapchat sticker feature, take a picture or use an existing one. Open the sticker tool, and pick the sticker you like. After adding the sticker, resize and place the sticker. Finally, hit the send button to share the snap with your friends. 

Snapchat also lets you customize your stickers or choose from the library of stickers available on the app. 

The possibilities are endless! Let’s learn more about using stickers on Snapchat.

What Is a Snapchat Sticker?

With Snapchat stickers, you can convert your images or snaps to stickers that can be saved to be reused. Snapchat also provides its own stickers, including GIFs and customized Bitmoji icons.

There are mainly six categories of stickers on Snapchat. 

Here is a short overview of the options you can explore for fun with stickers.

Category #1: Recent Snapchat Stickers

In the recent stickers tab, you will find the stickers you have used recently or the ones you use frequently.

If you are new to Snapchat or stickers, the Recent tab will show you the popular emojis.

Category #2: Emoji Stickers

Emojis are nothing new and can be found on all social media applications.

You can find the standard emojis collection on Snapchat as well.

Category #3: Customized Snapchat Stickers

As mentioned earlier, you can add your personal touch by customizing stickers. In this tab, you will find all the stickers you have created.

We will look at how to customize your stickers in a while, so hang in there.

Category #4: Suggested Snapchat Stickers

You must have seen the day’s standard timestamp or sticker on your friends’ snaps. These are the recommended stickers. These will be shown to you automatically whenever you open the sticker tab.

You might also see the Bitmoji stickers being recommended to you.

Category #5: Bitmoji Stickers

Bitmojis are another type of customized sticker that you can find on Snapchat. You can create your own Bitmoji character on the Bitmoji app or Snapchat. It will then show on your Snapchat sticker tab.

What makes Bitmoji so fun is that you can type in any keyword, and Snapchat will show you various relevant options. It is perfect for when you do not know what to say.

Category #6: GIF Stickers

There is no separate GIF tab or icon, but you can find it in the stickers tab. Tap on the “GIF” button that appears along with other recommended stickers.

Alternatively, use the search bar for a relatable GIF. Just enter the keywords, and you will be shown all the relevant GIFs, stickers, and Bitmojis.

So are you excited to relive the good old days of stickers?
