For example, your Samsung Galaxy phone may have its own entire collection of these lovely images, similarly, if you are using SwiftKey Keyboard, it also may have a huge collection of these, but WhatsApp stickers are completely different.

WhatsApp stickers reside in the emoji section of your messenger. In your WhatsApp Messenger, the message bar where you type the text, you will find an emoji icon on the left side. Clicking on this will open the emojis. At the bottom of this screen, you will find GIF and Stickers.
