Make, Find, and Use Your Own GIF Stickers with GIPHY Username Search

A few weeks ago, we introduced GIPHY users to one of our newest creation tools, GIPHY Desktop Sticker Maker. As we teased in that post, Desktop Sticker Maker was simply the first step in helping users access their content wherever their conversations are happening.

Today, we bring you the next iteration of that news with GIPHY’s Username Search. Username Search allows you to access the content you made on Desktop Sticker Maker anywhere GIPHY Stickers are integrated. Instead of searching for an emotion, character, or particular phrase to pull up a GIF… simply enter your GIPHY @username in the GIF Sticker search field in the app and your approved content will appear!

We hope you check it out! All you have to do is make a Sticker using GIPHY Desktop Sticker Maker, wait a little while for us to make it available everywhere GIPHY is found, and then access it by searching for your username in any GIPHY Sticker-integrated app (see a demo in the video above)!

Being able to bring Username Search to our audience is an important step in helping ensure that — on GIPHY — every user feels empowered to be a creator.

Stay animated, friends!
