Whatsapp Animated Stickers
Whatsapp announced several new features for the popular web messaging service, and one of them includes support for animated stickers. We kinda hope that it will be an in app feature that the current stickers where you have to download externally via a app through play store/app store to be able to add the stickers to your whatsapp keyboard. Other updates includes dark mode for desktop web, QR code support, group video call improvements and new status update.
For more details:
Whatsapp New FeaturesUsed to be just static stickers, users can now use stickers that are animated. Apart from that, it’s just that – moving stickers. I guess it better helps you express your emotion and feeling. So, if you’re angry, use a sticker. But if you’re really angry, use an animated sticker. If you’re furious, use a GIF.

Asus Vivobook S15 Review
Here we have another laptop that is just fresh out of factory, the Asus Vivobook S15 that just arrived in Malaysia. Compared to the Expertbook B9 we reviewed last week, this laptop caters to students. It is much cheaper than the Expertbook but slightly heavier.
Here’s our review for the laptop:
Asus Vivobook S15Having a 10th generation Intel Core i5 and an Nvidia GeForce MX250 GPU, the Asus VivoBook S15 is a reliable everyday workhorse that you can definitely count on. Not only does it get you through your daily tasks, you’d still have battery left to spare at the end of the day. Its thin and light body makes it easy to carry around with you wherever you go, making working remotely a stress-free agenda in your itinerary.

Death Stranding Coming to PCThose aside, it’ll be interesting to see just how well Death Stranding will run on PC; especially given the fact that it was initially developed with consoles in mind. Knowing this, we’d advice our readers to wait until reviews of the game on PC have been released before purchasing the game.
After years, we finally got a new game from this classic series. It is now an battle-royale or team deathmatch game. You can also dress up and customize your little worm by earning in game XP and currency.
