Who doesn’t like to celebrate Holi with their friends and relatives? Now that our festival of colours is almost upon us, we can soon expect Happy Holi greetings to pour in from every corner of social media as well as instant messaging apps like WhatsApp. But unlike before, WhatsApp now allows users to share WhatsApp stickers to greet their friends and family members. What’s more, you can even create your own, custom WhatsApp stickers. This Holi, we show you how to do just that.
Sending stickers to your friends and relatives on WhatsApp is fairly easy. However, remember that not all kinds of stickers exist on WhatsApp by default. Some of them also need to be downloaded or installed on your WhatsApp and in some cases, you have to create stickers on your own. Whatever the case may be, we show you how to download and share Happy Holi stickers on WhatsApp.
