WhatsApp has introduced the new Unicode 9.0 emojis in their latest beta version (2.17.44) of its Android app.
At the moment, the emojis are only available with WhatsApp beta for Android and will release to the stable channel later.
Even though iOS and Android last year received the fresh set of emojis, WhatsApp now wants to bring them for all its Android app users regardless of the Android version they are running on the device.
If you want to download the beta version of WhatsApp, this is how you can go about doing so:Go to the Google Play store on your device Go to app’s listing and scroll down to ‘Become a beta tester’ part Once you enter the beta testing mode, you’ll be able to download the WhatsApp beta app within a few minutes.
WhatsApp recently enabled full support for Android Nougat notifications where it now shows all unread messages from a single conversation and not just the latest message, just like it had earlier on.
