New sticker pack released for WhatsApp users on Android, iOS
Over the last few months, Facebook-owned messaging service WhatsApp has struggled to retain users abandoning the platform in favor of alternatives such as Signal. A recent regional update includes the release of the Mozão sticker pack for WhatsApp users on Android and iOS in Brazil. However, you can use the sticker pack in other regions as well. Here are more details.
Regional stickers discoverable if you signed up from that region
WhatsApp released an exclusive animated sticker pack for users in Brazil. Named Mozão, the pack has a file size of 1.5 MB and is reportedly available for all versions of the messaging app. However, being a regional pack, only those who have signed up using a Brazilian phone number will be able to find the new sticker pack on WhatsApp.
Users outside Brazil can install Mozão using its dedicated link
To install a sticker pack, open a conversation and tap Emoji > Stickers > Add. If you don't have a Brazilian phone number but want to download the stickers anyway, WABetaInfo claims that the Mozão sticker pack can be downloaded using this link as well (https://wa.me/stickerpack/Mozao). The sticker pack includes messages and doodles in Portuguese which you can share with your contacts.
WhatsApp has also removed lines separating conversations on chat list
Besides this, WhatsApp introduced a slew of minor fixes and features. For example, WhatsApp has removed the lines that separated various conversations on the chat list. Livemint reported that this minor user interface (UI) change will be available for users of WhatsApp's web release or the stable version from Google Play Store. Additionally, dark mode notification UI elements are blue for WhatsApp's beta version.
Dark mode notification elements were colored blue instead of green
The WhatsApp logo, badge, and "Reply" and "Mark as read" buttons were reportedly colored blue instead of green when the dark mode was enabled on the device. A similar change is expected to be in the pipeline for the light color scheme as well. Until WhatsApp rolls out these features for the stable version of the app, you can enjoy the Mozão sticker pack.
