Instagram has launched new stickers for users to add more shine to their Stories and celebrations. WhatsApp doesn’t offer dedicated Diwali stickers as yet, but you can download some third-party apps if you want to send your Diwali 2021 wishes to your WhatsApp friends and family members.

Instagram gets new Diwali stickers
Instagram has launched three new stickers for the festival season. The new Diwali stickers will be visible to users when they create Stories and visit the stickers section. These will also be visible to their followers in a Diwali special multi-author story.
Instagram says the new stickers are a part of Instagram’s global campaign for Diwali called #ShareYourLight. They have been created in collaboration with Neethi, a Bangalore-based illustrator, muralist, and pattern designer.
The company has confirmed that the newly added stickers will be visible from tonight and the multi-author story will be live from tomorrow night.
