PicsArt update brings custom stickers to third-party apps on Android

Introducing PicsArt Android Sticker Keyboard

Can’t find the perfect sticker for that text message or that Story? PicsArt’s custom stickers — and 5 million free stickers — can now be accessed outside the photo editing app as a sticker keyboard. On Wednesday, May 30, PicsArt launched an Android-only sticker keyboard, a move that allows stickers from the app to be used inside third-party apps, including messaging platforms and social apps.

By activating the sticker keyboard, PicsArt’s stickers, as well as each user’s own custom stickers, becomes available in outside apps using the keyboard. The feature is available on any third-party app that supports outside stickers, including integrating those graphics into Instagram Stories, text messages, and other apps.

With so many stickers, the keyboard uses a search bar to help find the right option. The PicsArt sticker keyboard also allows for browsing by the trending stickers, as well as top stickers for the hashtags in the post. The keyboard also works with PicsArt’s earlier option that allows users to create their own stickers within the app.

“We now have over 5 million free community stickers, and one of the largest and growing collections of free stickers in the world,” PicsArt CEO and founder Hovhannes Avoyan said in a statement. “Our new Android Sticker Keyboard enables any PicsArt Android user to take those stickers and utilize them off PicsArt, in messaging, social media and other creativity products and apps. This further illustrates our mission to be the best place to make, find and share awesome interactive content.”

To use the new keyboard, Android users first have to update the PicsArt app. Then, inside the device settings (not the PicsArt app itself), navigate to the language and input option and the keyboard menu. Tapping the toggle on the PicsArt Keyboard will turn the sticker keyboard on, bringing it into other apps that support keyboards. The PicsArt app also needs to be restarted before the keyboard appears in other apps once the settings are adjusted.

The PicsArt Keyboard begins rolling out to Android users on May 30. All Android users should see the update over the next few days. For new users, PicsArt is available as a free download from Google Play.

The Apple iPhone SE (2022) and Apple iPhone SE (2020) together.

While the spotlight always seems to be on Apple’s mainline iPhones, the iPhone SE is a great pick for those who are on a budget. If you want an iPhone that doesn't break the bank, the SE is the way to go.

The original iPhone SE came out in 2016, and then Apple revamped it in 2020 and 2022 by giving it some more modern hardware. The iPhone SE tends to get updated every two or so years rather than annually like the traditional iPhone. This means  that we should see a new iPhone SE 4 this year, but it’s not so cut-and-dried with this particular model.
