Now, you can make your chats even more exciting by turning your selfies into stickers. Your friends can now see your reactions through these stickers, whether you are angry, sad or laughing out loud.
You can also add some text to compliment your selfie stickers and change the background with different patterns.
Sticky uses auto cut-out feature to accurately differentiate the background.
"We trained neural networks to find different objects on a photo/video and even on a live video stream. So basically our trained neural networks are looking for a person on a photo. That's all we need. Then we can cut out the background and the sticker is ready," co-founder Aram Airapetyan told Techcrunch.
The app is currently available on iOS for free but Android users have to wait for a week or two.
Once you create your selfie stickers you can not only share them on social media platforms but also on messaging apps such as WhatsApp, iMessage, Facebook Messenger, WeChat and Telegram.

Sticky AI has some tough shoes to fill in as Prisma was globally viral last year and attracted nearly 70 million downloads in just a few months of its launch. The popularity of Prisma led to social media giants like Facebook to copy its core feature. The bigger question is whether Sticky will meet the same fate as its predecessor. We'll find out soon enough.
