WhatsApp stickers let us text friends with more fun elements and jokes instead of sending images. We can create custom WhatsApp stickers and custom WhatsApp animated stickers as well. Also, it is possible to add any sticker you received to the favorites folder on WhatsApp. When there is a lot of stickers saved on your WhatsApp, it becomes difficult to find or search WhatsApp stickers you want.
Here, we will show you how to search and find WhatsApp stickers on iPhone and Android phones.
Search and Find WhatsApp Stickers
WhatsApp stickers can now be searched from both iPhone and Android. There is a search option in the WhatsApp stickers panel for you to find them.

- Open any WhatsApp chat.
- Go to the stickers option (on Android, switch to sticker from emoji keyboard).
- Tap the search button on the bottom-left corner of the screen.
- Enter any possible sticker name or sticker pack name.
- Tap the sticker from the search result to use it.
When you search for stickers, make sure you are using the terms used by the creator to save the sticker. If you are looking for a sticker with certain emotions, use the tabs you see in the sticker search window. Stickers will be grouped based on emotions (sad, happy, celebration, etc.).
Editor’s Note: The screenshots you see above are from an iPhone. Please note that the same method is applicable for Android users as well.
On iPhone, you can now search emojis apart from stickers. You simply need to open the emoji keyboard on your iPhone and tap the search bar at the top of the keyboard.
WhatsApp stickers are sorted based on the “emotions” at first. You will need to enter the search term only when you are not able to find the sticker from the grouped sections. Hope you now have a clear idea to search WhatsApp stickers on your phone.
