iPhone User Using Memoji Stickers
Khamosh Pathak / How-To Geek

Recording and sending Memoji videos is quite fun. But did you know that Apple automatically creates a sticker pack for every Memoji character? It’s like Bitmoji but even better. Here’s how to use Memoji stickers on iPhone and iPad.

First, Create Your Memoji

As Apple generates the stickers automatically, they are available to use in the Messages app and in the Emoji keyboard as well. This means you can send Memoji stickers in any supported third-party messaging app (like WhatsApp).

All you need to begin is a Memoji character. Here’s how to create your own personalized Memoji character using the Messages app on your iPhone.

First, let’s talk about sending Memoji stickers in iMessage conversations using the Messages app.

Swipe down from your iPhone home screen to open “Spotlight Search.” From here, search for “Messages,” and tap on the app icon to open the Messages app.

From the Messages app, tap a conversation to select it.

From within the conversation, tap the “Memoji Stickers” app from the toolbar above the keyboard. It looks like a face with heart emoji positioned over it.

If you don’t see these icons, tap the gray app store icon (it looks like an “A”) to the left of the text bar and to the right of the camera icon.

How to Send Memoji Stickers in Third-Party Messaging Apps

As Memoji stickers are integrated directly into the keyboard, they work with many third-party messaging apps. WhatsApp is a prime example.

To send Memoji stickers using WhatsApp, open a “WhatsApp” conversation, and switch to the Emoji keyboard by tapping the “Emoji” button to the left of the Space bar.

Tap Emoji Button in Keyboard

Here, you’ll see a grid of Memoji stickers at the beginning of the “Frequently Used” section. If you don’t see them, swipe left in the keyboard view to access the Frequently Used section.

Now, if you have previously used Memoji stickers, you’ll find some of your recently used stickers right here. But to see all stickers, tap the “Menu” button that looks like a “…”.

Tap Menu Button From Memoji Stickers Section

Here, select a Memoji character, and swipe up to see all available stickers.

Choose Your Memoji From Keyboard View

Tap the sticker you want to send.

Tap on Memoji To Choose It

WhatsApp will prepare the sticker. In a second, it will show up directly in the conversation.
