WhatsApp has now started rolling out its own set of emojis in the latest beta update for its app — version 2.17.364. People signed into WhatsApp’s beta program will now see a new set of emojis after updating their app to the latest version.
While reports hold that these emojis bear a close resemblance to emojis on iOS, these are still in the beta stage and might differ when rolled out in the stable built.
Emojis on WhatsApp has evolved over a period of time, with the app giving them a dedicated emoji keyboard integrated with a search option to find emojis.
Following the last update involving emojis, users can now simply write the emoji’s name such as ‘beer’ ‘dog’ ‘cat’ and more and the emoji will appear in the suggestions.
Earlier, users could only delete entire conversations along with the media files but now they will be able to delete each of these separately. Per se, you wish to delete the text conversation but wish to keep the media or vice-versa — that’s possible now.
