Centuries ago, love was expressed with words, strung together carefully to create love letters or poems, which would take months to deliver. With today’s technology, sending a thoughtful message can be done in a matter of seconds.
But why not take it a step further? Let our stickers help you express the feelings that words can’t always describe. This Valentine’s Day, we’ve prepared two sticker sets for you to share with friends, family or that special someone: Trainee Cupid and Sweet Love.
Meet Beetee, the world’s cutest Cupid-in-training! He loves nothing more than a delicious batch of honey and buzzing around.

Introducing three of our special holiday sticker packs – Santa’s Little Elfer, Xmas 2K14 and Mr. Topper to help you celebrate this festive season!
Santa’s Little ElferWork at the North Pole is tough, but Santa’s Little Elfer knows how to keep it fun and productive so that every boy and girl on Santa’s nice list gets what they want for Christmas (yay)! Unfortunately, he’s also in charge of making sure all the naughty kids get their fair share of coal (boo).
When Santa’s Little Elfer isn’t building presents at the workshop, you can find him and the other elves at the local tavern drinking spiked eggnog while getting their groove on to some step dancing and jigging.
Whether he’s sharing milk and cookies with Santa or wrapping presents, this friendly elf will make your Christmas and WeChat conversations ever so jolly!

Thanks to the incredible and accessible information on the Internet, we know many of our users are geniuses (or at least pretty darn smart)! The downside is that being a genius takes a lot of work and can be tiring. That’s where our new Hey Good Thinking sticker set comes in.
While Albert Einstein, the character behind Hey Good Thinking, is known for his chops in math and physics, he’s also a shy guy who loves playing the violin and having fun! Whether it’s sipping drinks from a beaker or coming up with the next big theory, he knows the importance of maintaining a youthful spirit. But hey, it’s all relative, right?
Inspired by one of the world’s most powerful and genius minds, Hey Good Thinking stickers are now available to download in the WeChat sticker gallery, so you can work hard, think big and have fun all at the same time. So go ahead, take a study break with Albert Einstein so you can recharge and ace life!
We all know WeChat stickers are more than stickers. Each character has a unique personality that comes to life through animation. But what would you do if your favorite sticker actually came to life, jumped out of your mobile screen and into the 3D world? Take a #selfie with it of course, right?
Well, maybe that’s not the first thing you would do. But it would be pretty close.
To bring the fun of WeChat’s animated stickers to the offline world, the WeChat Thailand team did just this. They turned four of the most popular Thai stickers into life-sized 3D models for people at Siam Square One mall to take pictures with and enjoy. The characters included: Yell-O, LamunLamai, Stir Monkey and Miss Mousie.

Move over #selfies, customized animated emojis are the newest social craze with the launch of WeChat’s latest app, MojiMe now available to download for Android and iOS users in Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, India, Philippines, South Africa, Italy, China and US users.

Both options have a variety of animated character themes to choose from. For single emoji, these include Suprise, TV Drama, Horror Movies and Cute Girl. For buddy emoji, these include MoMo and Rabbit, Prince and Princess, Mr. Cool and Panda, Love Story and BFF. Users can also download even more themes from the sticker gallery by selecting the “+” icon in MojiMe with new ones constantly being added. So whatever your personality or mood may be, there is a theme to help you express it.

Alex Goldmark and his girlfriend, Liza Stark, had the ultimate WeChat experience – using only stickers to communicate for a whole month. Listen to their New Tech City story and how they used WeChat stickers for the journey.
Face it, Emoji is here to stay. Texting is visual, and images can enhance how we talk. But, will it also change the content of what we say to each other?
In this intimate episode, one couple banishes all written words from text messages for a month to see how it alters their emotional vocabulary. Along the way they are forced to create their own lexicon of imagery — oddly, not terribly unlike ancient Egyptians and Sumerians. Naturally, this 21st century couple hits a few comical communications mishaps as they build a visual language of two.
