From Delightful To Uncanny, The Range Of Generated Designs Surprises Users

November 2, 2023 — In the fierce competition of messaging apps, while some swear by Telegram, others are staunch advocates for WhatsApp. Nonetheless, WhatsApp’s recent release has left many users intrigued, if not entirely swayed. The latest update of this messaging giant introduces a novel AI sticker feature, which has rapidly gained attention for its delightful and, at times, puzzling outcomes.

With the new feature, users can access a META-powered service that creates images solely from the textual input they provide. This innovation has led to an assortment of reactions, with many users relishing the entertaining and often whimsical sticker results.

How It Works: Accessing WhatsApp’s AI Sticker Feature 

For those eager to delve into the world of AI stickers on WhatsApp, here’s a step-by-step guide: 

  1. Open WhatsApp and tap on the smiley emoji positioned on the far left.
  2. Navigate to the sticker tab on the right, then tap the obvious “Create” button.
  3. Input the desired text, and voila! An AI-generated sticker is crafted, and ready to be incorporated into chat threads.

One point of relief for many: WhatsApp ensures that risqué or inappropriate stickers cannot be generated. However, in a surprising twist, the feature appears to accommodate real-life celebrity names as text prompts, giving rise to imaginative, if not outright fantastical, scenarios.

The air is rife with speculation on how long such freedoms with celebrity-inspired AI stickers will last, especially given potential copyright concerns. But for the moment, users are encouraged to harness this feature, adding a dash of creativity to their regular chats.

For die-hard non-WhatsApp users still intrigued by the realm of enhanced stickers, there’s a potential solution. Gboard, developed by Google, presents an appealing alternative. This app facilitates the merging of distinct emojis, culminating in a singular sticker. These creations can then be flaunted across various messaging platforms. A point to note, however, is that this specific feature of Gboard currently caters only to Android phone users.

The introduction of AI-driven stickers is a testament to WhatsApp’s continuous endeavour to evolve and match the dynamic needs of its expansive user base. Whether these stickers are here to stay or are merely a passing trend remains to be seen, but they’ve certainly injected a dose of fun into many users’ messaging experiences. Stay tuned to DEI for more updates.
