The Sticker Panel has over 20,000 free stickers from professional artists. You can take a look at what’s trending, search for something specific – or simply type an emoji to get instant suggestions.

Animated Stickers run at a smooth 60 frames per second. They consume less battery than GIFs and are 6 times smaller than the average photo.
