Guru Purnima 2019 WhatsApp stickers: How to download and use stickers for the occasion

Here's a quick and easy way to add the occasion-themed stickers to your WhatsApp.

The 16 July of every year is marked as Guru Purnima, a spiritual tradition in Hindu religion that is dedicated to spiritual and academic teachers, who have taught us something or selflessly helped us through a problem in life. If you are also thinking about a mentor reading this, one of the most animated ways to let them know you are thankful is via fun stickers and GIFs on WhatsApp. Here's a quick and easy way to add the occasion-themed stickers to your WhatsApp.

To get started, open any WhatsApp chat, tap on the emoticon icon, and then the sticker icon below. Then, next to the carousel of all your added stickers, you will see a '+' icon. Hit that. Now, on the All Stickers tab, scroll down to the extreme bottom, where you will see the Get More Stickers shortcut to the Play Store.

Once you are in the store, you can search Guru Purnima stickers, which will suggest you a whole list of sticker apps. Notably, though, not all the suggestions that show up are genuine. Many of them are just apps with a bazillion ads in them, and they don't even offer genuine stickers.
