If you want to get Memoji Stickers to use in WhatsApp on an Android phone then you’ll need a little help from one of your friends with an iPhone.
You will need a friend that is using a device with iOS 13 to create a Memoji with your likeness. From there on out you can get Memoji Stickers sent from this iPhone to your Android device.

You can ask your friend to send you as many or as little Memojis you want.
Then, on your Android device click on each sticker and save these Memojis by selecting ‘Add to Favourites’.
The Memojis will then be saved in your WhatsApp stickers, ready for you to use.

It requires a bit of a workaround, but it means just because you’re an Android user you don’t have to miss out on the joys of Memojis.
