Before we reveal the specific procedure, it is necessary to do one very important premise, that is, have the version of the app that integrates the ability to send stickers.
Specifically, on Android devices, you need to have the 2.18.329 or later while on iOS and Windows Phone the release 2.18.100 or later. However, despite installing the two versions of the app just mentioned, some may still not have the opportunity to use the stickers. In this case, we advise you to back up your conversations (if you don't know how to do it, follow the instructions in our guides Android WhatsApp Backup and WhatsApp Backup and Restore on iPhone), uninstall it from the settings and reinstall it from the Google Play Store, the App Store or the Microsoft Store.

Right now, WhatsApp offers 12 packs of stickers preloaded but you can find others on the respective stores or carry out a manual search by typing the term in the Search field WAStickerApps.
