Several sticker packs have been introduced ever since, and WhatsApp users are in a rat race with each other to see who has the best collection.
Everything is fun and games until the time comes to change your phone!
This means making a backup of your conversations, contacts, media, and of course, back up stickers in WhatsApp.
Because you certainly don't want to lose the collection you so carefully and selectively created!
