WeChat Introduces Stickers
MALAYSIA (20 December 2013) – Stickers have invaded mobile chats screens particularly in Asia where the masses have fallen in love with cartoon heroes for their funny expressions and body language that traditional text messages simply can’t convey. But while new characters continue to debut and battle to be the next sticker superstar, WeChat and MotionPortrait, Inc from Japan have partnered to bring mobile chats and social sharing to life with seamless sharing of personalized stickers from MotionPortrait’s sticker-making app – StickerMe – to WeChat Moments and chat features.
With StickerMe, Android and iOS users can create over 180 fun and whacky stickers with a single photo of themselves. Users simply need to either take a new photo or upload an existing picture of themselves or even their pet and the app will naturally transform the facial expression to fit a variety of seriously entertaining sticker templates – ranging from relatable everyday life scenarios (think crowded morning commute and eureka moments in the bathroom) to special occasions and cartoon characters such as prince and princesses, heroes and even whacky Japanese-styled fishes. Once created, the stickers can be saved and shared in mobile chat and email conversations.
Recognizing the popularity of stickers amongst youths and adults in Asia’s smart phone nations, WeChat has partnered with MotionPortrait’s StickerMe to allow million of WeChat users to create, save and share personalized stickers directly on their WeChat chats and Moments social feeds. In addition, special Christmas-themed StickerMe templates will be made available exclusively to WeChat users this December for both iOS and Android users from today!
With plans for more collaboration between WeChat and StickerMe, conversations will only get a lot more dynamic, expressive and fun for WeChat users every day. Simply search “StickerMe” on App Store or Google Play, download the app for free, and transform your daily chats into a real-life story!
