Whatsapp emoji update released

A recent report from WABetaInfo confirms that the latest  Whatsapp update will allow Android users to see the emoji being used on WhatsApp for Apple iOS. This update is necessary to support the new set of emojis released along with the latest Apple iOS 14.5. Apple had released some new emojis like a heart on fire, an exhaling face and more but none of these were supported by the latest version of the Android ecosystem. Thus it was certain that the American instant messaging platform was going to release an update to release all the 217 new emojis for their Android users.

According to the report listed by WABetaInfo, the users will need to download the beta version 2.21.16.10 of WhatsApp for Android. Only after this, they will be able to see all the new emoji sent by their iOS using friends or contacts. The update will also make the in-app emoji picker available to use. The industry experts claim that the system-wide support could be released with the new Android 12 that is supposed to be released in September 2021. Currently, the developers added a new multi-device feature for its users. This helps by giving access to use the app on your phone and 4 other devices at same time.
