The new features can be accessed by creating a new message and clicking on the “+” icon on the bottom of the screen, near the area where you type your actual message. The menu that comes up with give you the standard “Take a Photo,” “Photo Gallery,” and “Send Location” options, but if you swipe left, you’re greeted with an assortment of stickers that you can then send to your contacts. The emoticons are available if you swipe to the right. You can view the very numerous stickers and emoticons by scrolling down once you’ve accessed those respective menus.
