Some time ago, Elon Musk told us to stop using WhatsApp and switch to a different platform. Telegram is often considered a WhatsApp rival or “killer” for that matter even though that fact is yet to be proven for an app that has over 6 billion downloads on the Play Store even though that number can be disputed, that’s not the point.
The point is if you’re part of those that want to switch back to WhatsApp or just want to incorporate it as an alternative but also want to move your already-made stickers away to the popular instant messaging app from its rival but don’t know how, well, this short guide is for you.
We all make use of stickers because they are better ways of expressing ourselves via chat. Stickers portray more information compared to emojis and that is why they are so common.
Although it is very possible to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, you can also transfer the ones you already have from Telegram to WhatsApp in a few steps.
One thing you need to know though is the fact that this trick may only work for Android users due to the fact that the app that will help make the transfer possible can only be found on the Google Play Store.
The name of the application is Telegram Stickers to WhatsApp. It’s a completely free application and can be installed on an Android device. The application does the heavy lifting on your behalf in a matter of minutes.
Task duration is about 30 minutes
1. Download Telegram sticker to WhatsApp
First thing first, visit the Google Play Store and search for “Telegram sticker to WhatsApp” or just make use of this link in order to download the application.
2. Prepare your Telegram app for the export
Once installed, you want to launch the Telegram application and then click on
1. Open the Settings page

5. Click on Copy Link
3. Head back to the Telegram sticker exporter app
Now, head back to the Telegram Sticker to WhatsApp application that we downloaded in part one, and then click on the part that reads “Click here to open Telegram required for this App”. Upon clicking on it, you’ll be taken to the Telegram Bot interface.
4. Download your Stickers
When the Telegram Bot is opened, click on “Start” and then paste the link we copied back in part two. Then wait for the Telegram Bot to download your sticker pack for you.
Depending on the speed of your internet and the size of the sticker pack being downloaded, this whole process shouldn’t take too long.
5. Transfer the downloaded stickers to WhatsApp
The last step is to click on the downloaded file and open it with the Telegram sticker on the WhatsApp application. Click on “Add to WhatsApp” to complete the entire process.
