Just like acronyms HBU, WAY, Whatup and WYD, this one is also a part of the conversation starter questions group. WBY is the abbreviated term for the phrase What About You or What Bout You. It is used when you are asking for an opinion or wellbeing or just a Sunday plan of the person on the other side or the receiving end.

Out of all the mentioned acronyms above, this slang resembles the most to HBU, since even that abbreviation focuses on and gives priority to the other person. Another reason why they resemble so much is that they also mean the same thing.
