Just like WhatsApp, you can use sticker packs in Signal. The encrypted messaging app offers a couple of sticker packs to get you started. If those arenâ€™t enough, you can download awesome third-party stickers and use them directly in Signal.
How to Use Signalâ€™s Built-in Sticker Packs
Signalâ€™s own sticker packs are enough to get you started. LikeÂ everything else in Signal, the stickers are also secured using end-to-end encryption. The steps are slightly different based on your device.
If youâ€™re using Signal on your iPhone,Â first, open a conversation, then tap the sticker button from the text box.
Here, tap the â€œ+â€� button from the top-right corner.
Youâ€™ll now see all the available stickers. You can tap on a sticker pack to see all the stickers in the pack. Tap the Download button to install the sticker pack.
Youâ€™ll find the sticker pack at the top of the stickers section. Select the sticker pack from the top and tap a sticker to send it in the chat.
If youâ€™re using an Android device, go to a conversation and tap the sticker button thatâ€™s on the left side of the text box.
Here, select the stickers button and tap the â€œ+â€� button to add a new sticker pack.
Now, tap the Download button next to the sticker pack.
Once thatâ€™s installed, you can switch between sticker packs from the bottom of the stickers section. Tap a sticker to send it in the chat.
How to Download Third-Party Stickers for Signal

The sticker pack will now be added to Signal. If youâ€™re using an iPhone, youâ€™ll find the new sticker pack at the top of the stickers section. Select the sticker pack and tap a sticker to send it out in the chat.
If youâ€™re using an Android smartphone, youâ€™ll see the new sticker pack at the bottom of the sticker section. Select the sticker pack and tap the sticker to send it in the chat.
