You need only 2 things.

While converting, make sure to resize the image into 512×512 as the dimension.

can use webp optimizer or just reduce the number of frames and then save.

Check the "File Size" its less than "1MB". if its not, you can use the Frames option to reduce the frame

Now Download the file, it will be in your Downloads folder.
Once you download, the steps are easy, but you need to follow them carefully.

The following steps are common for both methods. But there’s a tricky part in here.

Common steps for both methods

  • 1. Navigate to your WhatsApp folder➡️ ➡️Go to the media➡️Whatsapp sticker. Now you need to copy the first sticker’s file name. Make sure you’ve sorted it into ‘new to old’ style. And, make sure it’s a recently sent sticker, or make your friend send it to you (Check Update. It needs to a New Sticker, which you don’t have in your favourites or anywhere. Also don’t try with WhatsApp’s default stickers.)
I copied the name of the sticker which my friend sent me.
  • Now go to downloads folder rename the downloaded webp sticker (the sticker file which you got from both the methods) and paste what you copied. Now move the renamed sticker back to ➡️ WhatsApp ➡️ Media ➡️ WhatsApp sticker and make sure the same name file shouldn’t exist.



  • Clear the cache of WhatsApp and close the app. Now open the app, you should see the animated WhatsApp sticker you just made!! Voila… Just add it to your favourites so that you can use it with your friends and family.

Update

There was an issue regarding the stickers converting back to its original form when you replace them with your own sticker. So we got a catch of that too!!

You can only make animated stickers from the new stickers which you haven’t added into your favourites (by using “Add to favourite“), and also the sticker which your friend sent, should not be in your sticker list.

For example, let’s say, your friend sent you one new sticker to you (animated or regular, it doesn’t matter), so only that sticker you can copy its name then remove it from sticker folder then paste the copied name into the converted WEBP file of your desired sticker, then just put it in the sticker folder. You’re good to go, clear the WhatsApp cache and close the app. Open again, Open your friends chat, now you should see your sticker file, add it in your favourites. It will be permanent.
