Want to level up your messaging game? Here’s how to download animated stickers for WhatsApp and Telegram with the LottieFiles Mobile App. It’s free, quick and super fun.

What are WhatsApp and Telegram stickers?

In case you aren’t familiar, many messaging apps offer the ability to send stickers as messages. Think of stickers as more interesting emojis – they can be created, customized, and can be static or animated. WhatsApp and Telegram come with a limited seat of default stickers – to get more, you can download them from third-party apps like the LottieFiles Mobile App.

WhatsApp stickers use the .webp extension, which is a lightweight, modern file format for images. On the other hand, the .tgs exension is used specifically for animated Telegram stickers. This can be helpful to know if you’re downloading stickers from other platforms. But don’t worry – with the LottieFiles Mobile App, you can directly download stickers to WhatsApp and Telegram without wrangling with file formats.
