WhatsApp updated with new emojis
We’ve known for a while now that WhatsApp’s been testing the new emoji that were introduced as part of Unicode 9.0 in December, and today the instant messaging giant has started rolling out the much-anticipated update for its Android client via the Play Store.
This upgrade carries the same emoji included in Android 6.0.1, but only a handful of devices have been lucky enough to be graced with the new firmware — so, consequently, many WhatsApp users will be welcoming this upgrade with open arms.
Unfortunately, WhatsApp hasn’t updated the changelog on the Play Store, which means that there could be some hidden gems integrated into the update that we haven’t found out about yet.
To install the update, simply open up the Play Store on your device, toggle the hamburger menu by swiping in from the left-hand side of the screen, select ‘My Apps’ and click on ‘WhatsApp’. Next, hit the update button, and the upgrade will instantly start to download and install.
