Enjoy using stickers in your instant messaging app? You'll want to check out the latest update (version 188.8.131.52) to Telegram Messenger Beta, which allows you to create custom sticker sets. Users will be able to design stickers with the help of the @stickers bot, and then be able to share their creations — such as this Animals sticker set — with their contacts.
These are the commands that are currently recognized by the @stickers bot:
- /newstickerpack - create a new sticker pack
- /addsticker - add a new sticker to an existing pack
- /delsticker - remove a sticker from an existing pack
- /ordersticker - reorder stickers in a pack
- /cancel - cancel the current operation
If you're interested in creating new stickers, the bot provides guidelines on size and image format:
The image file should be in PNG format with a transparent layer and must fit into a 512x512 square (one of the sides must be 512px and the other 512px or less).
The sticker should use white stroke and shadow, exactly like in this .PSD example https://telegram.org/img/StickerExample.psd.
Telegram suggests you use the web version to upload your custom stickers. How many of you are interested in designing custom stickers?
Thanks Abhishek, Aman and Akhilesh!
