"Howzat!" and "Weird is beautiful" are the names of two new sticker sets for WhatsApp's messaging platform. As the name suggests, Howzat! is a nod to cricket season with a selection of cricket-related stickers to use in chats.
To try out the new pack, simply select a contact and then click anywhere in the type box. Now click on the emoji icon to the left, then tap on the sticker logo (next to smiley's and GIFs) at the bottom and you should see a " " sign on the top far right of the box. Tap on it. This will then take you to a new window that will allow you to download all the stickers you need. You can also tap on individual stickers to preview them before downloading.
Besides Howzat!, another sticker pack that is available is "Weird is Wonderful" which is a collection of bizarre animated stickers meant to celebrate an individual's quirks. "Celebrate your weird - it's what makes your chats wonderful," says the official sales pitch and one look at the pack, we think you will agree.
In case you missed it, WhatsApp is reportedly set to make accepting its terms of service optional. Only users who are planning to send messages to business accounts that use cloud providers will need to review and accept the policies. It is also going to start testing letting user's add reactions to chat messages pretty soon, similar to how you would on Facebook and Twitter posts.
