Back in March, Snapchat rolled out Chat 2.0, the highly-anticipated update that introduced stickers to the platform. Now you can add those same stickers to your Snaps.
The sticker collection includes colorful sloths, walruses with thought bubbles like “TGIF” and “When’s lunch?” and “basic” cartoon avocados. There are also classic nods to Snapchat like kittens vomiting rainbows. Noticeably missing, though, is the platform’s signature ghost icon.
To add a sticker, go to the note icon where you’d normally find emoji, next to the text icon. Stickers work the same way as emoji, but cuter and more expressive. According to Refinery29, you can even pin them to moving objects in videos, creating the illusion that the stickers are floating in space.
Letting snaps be customized with stickers is another example of what Snapchat has been nailing: making messaging fun and creative. The company recently added the ability to “pin” emojis to objects in videos and make them look animated. Snapchat has perhaps become best known for its wacky lenses, like the most recent collection that turns you into X-Men characters.
