How to use iMessage Memoji in WhatsApp and other apps. You no longer need special characters like colon (:), semicolon (;), etc., to create emoticons. Emotions can now be expressed with the help of emojis. If that's not enough, we also have stickers. Apple offers a special version of stickers known as memoji, with which you can create custom stickers from your phone. If you want to use memojis on WhatsApp and other apps, you are in the right place.




Fortunately, iMessage stickers will not be sent as photos but will appear as stickers in WhatsApp. The difference between photo and sticker is that the photos are large in size and you have to download them manually if you have disabled automatic media download. This is not the case with stickers. They're small in size, faster to send, and work much like emojis.

Let's see how to use iMessage memoji stickers on WhatsApp and other apps like Telegram, Facebook Messenger, etc. We will also tell you how to use iMessage stickers on WhatsApp on Android.

How to use stickers and memoji on Whatsapp and other applications

Step 1: for first, you need to create your memoji sticker if you haven't created one yet. For this, open iMessage and open an existing conversation with any person or compose a new message. Tap the Sticker icon below the typing area. On the far left side, tap the three-dot icon and choose New Memoji. Now make a custom sticker as per your choice.


Step 2: After having created your memoji, open WhatsApp or any other app that supports stickers like Facebook Messenger, Telegram, etc.



Step 3: if you're using the Apple keyboard as your default keyboard, tap and hold the globe or emoji icon at the bottom. Select the Emoji option from it.

If you're using a third-party keyboard like SwiftKey or Gboard, switch to the native iOS keyboard. For that, tap and hold the globe icon and select Next Keyboard or it may show a language. Touch it. Once the iOS keyboard is activated, tap and hold the same globe or emoji icon again. Choose Emoji from the menu.


Step 4: In the iOS Emoji keyboard, go to the far left of the keyboard by swiping right on the keyboard. First you will see the Frequently Used section among your emojis. Swipe right again and you'll discover a section containing your recent iMessage stickers. Tap the one you want to send in the WhatsApp chat.

Final report: memojis appear to be hidden if you don't scroll correctly. Swipe right on the emoji keyboard again. Many people do not slide their finger correctly. So they can't see the memoji stickers on the keyboard.

Step 5: To find and send more memojis, tap the three-pointed icon at the bottom of the Frequently used memoji section. Then, you will see your Memoji sticker collection. Tap the sticker you want to use.
