Gboard Now Lets You Turn Your Selfies Into Personalised Stickers

Still, Google may have a solution to this problem (and more) with its new Mini Stickers for Gboard. You'll simply open up Gboard on your phone, allow the app to scan your face, then a custom set of stickers are created for you.

At the moment, there are about 100 sticker styles in two different "Minis" packs, which include the glittery-eyed "Sweet" and its slightly angrier counterpart, "Bold".

The feature was first introduced in Allo a year ago, under the name Selfie Stickers (a much better moniker, alas), and is now being integrated into Gboard itself for easier access.

Packers trade QB Brett Hundley to Seahawks
The Seahawks allowed rookie seventh-round pick Alex McGough and last year's back-up Austin Davis to compete in training camp. He's completed 62 percent of his passes for 263 yards with one touchdown, one interception and a passer rating of 81.3.

Update to the latest version of Gboard, and head to the app to find the Stickers section.

As per Engadget, the feature uses a combination of machine learning, neural networks, and artist illustrations to come up with cartoon emoji. You can delete these sticker packs easily, and create them once again, if you aren't satisfied with the end result. Make sure your Gboard is up to date in Google Play and let us know if you see it.

Mini Stickers are quite easy to create - all you have to do is take a selfie, and Gboard will automatically use the selfie to make stickers. Google has announced that it's putting Allo's development on hold, mainly because Android Messages is becoming Google's go-to chat app, and some of Allo's features are making their way to other Google apps, such as this one, while Allo's Google Assistant-related features will roll out to Android Messages, it seems.
