Stickers or Emojis are a fun way of messaging with friends, like many messaging apps Telegram has also added Telegram Stickers to its app.Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security, it’s super-fast, simple and free. Telegram is supported on all devices like iPhone/iPad, Android, Windows Phone, Desktop Apps, PC/Mac/Linux, Mac OS and Web-browser at the same time — your messages sync seamlessly across any number of your phones, tablets or computers.
Unlike any other messaging app Telegram can send messages, photos, videos and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3, etc), as well as create groups for up to 5000 people or channels for broadcasting to unlimited audiences. You can write to your phone contacts and find people by their usernames. As a result, Telegram is like SMS and email combined — and can take care of all your personal or business messaging needs.
For people who are more into pictures, Telegram is the perfect app for that, it has animated gif search, a state of the art photo editor and an open sticker platform. What‘s more, there is no need to worry about disk space on your device. With Telegram’s cloud support and cache management options, Telegram can take up nearly zero space on your phone.
And those looking for extra privacy and secrecy , Telegram is the number one choice for that, it has Secret Chats with self-destructing messages, photos, and videos, and you can also lock your app with an additional passcode.
Telegram stickers were added on January 2015, these stickers are grouped around emotions, not characters. They do not clutter the interface, but are shown only when they are relevant – you will see a list of emotionally corresponding stickers whenever you start a message with an emoji. All Telegram stickers are completely free, and you can always create and share your own stickers.
At the initial launch 14 stickers were added. This first set of stickers portray people we respect most. These are great artists, poets, actors, scientists and leaders. And dozens more will soon added.
Sharing your own stickers
Telegram offer you to share stickers of your own, just save your sticker in WebP format with a transparency layer and send it to your friend as a document in Telegram (e.g. via Telegram Desktop). It will be shown as a sticker. Thanks to the WebP file format, Stickers on Telegram are displayed 5x faster compared to the other formats usually used in messaging apps.
Creating new stickers
Telegram is focused on people who like to create content. If you want your sticker to be seen by all Telegram users in the context menu corresponding to one of the emojis, you can always submit it via a chat with our Stickers bot – telegram.me/stickers.
Custom Sticker Sets
On May 19, 2015, Telegram introduced Custom Stickers Sets, an artists can now submit their custom sticker sets via the Telegram @stickers bot. Each sticker set gets a permanent link, so that users can easily add new stickers and share them with friends.
