SAN FRANCISCO — September 16, 2019 — Viber, one of the world’s leading messaging platforms, announces today the launch of its new feature, Create a Sticker, enabling users to design and create their own personalized stickers and packs. Users can now express themselves through their own customized stickers and packs that can convey a message better than words.
Over the years, Viber has released thousands of curated sticker packs that were sent by users over 30 billion times last year. Viber is now giving users the ability to express anything they want through the use of personalized stickers. Whether it be representing different personalities in the friend group, showing off puppies doing adorable tricks, or creating a special pack for a big event coming up, users can now create, design, and send stickers that represent virtually anything happening in their lives.
Users will be able to create individual stickers or packs of up to 24 by: opening the sticker creator from the sticker market, accessing the sticker menu inside any chat, or simply by taking any photo and instantly transforming it into sticker form.
The sticker feature enables users to:
As creators of their individual packs, users have the power to choose whether other Viber users can use those stickers, by labeling the sticker pack as either public or private. In addition, users will be able to report public packs, in the case that they violate Viber terms.
Creating stickers on Viber will be available in the upcoming days for Android on Google Play Store, and will soon be available on IOS and Viber Desktop.
