Rakuten Viber launches Create a Sticker feature, enabling users to transform any photo into the next viral sticker

Rakuten Viber becomes the only app to allow the full creative process of stickers within the app itself; users can now wow their friends with personalized stickers starring their faces, favourite sayings, people, places and more.

Rakuten Viber, one of the world’s leading messaging platforms, announces today the launch of its new feature, Create a Sticker, enabling users to easily design and create their own personalized stickers. 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 up to 24 individual stickers per pack 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 creator feature enables users to:

  • Shape stickers: Users can move the photo around, rotate it, or zoom in on a particular detail to create the sticker’s focus. They can also use the magic wand to remove the background of the photo
  • Decorate stickers: Once the shape is set, decorate stickers with doodles, text, other stickers or emojis to make them unique

As creators of their individual packs, users have the power to choose whether other Viber users can use those stickers, by labelling 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.
