WhatsApp Rolls Out Unicode 15.0 Emojis for Latest Beta Update on Android
WhatsApp is rolling out a new set of emojis that will make conversations more interesting. The new Unicode 15.0 emojis are currently available to WhatsApp beta testers for the Android 22.214.171.124 update that is available on the Google Play Store.
WABetaInfo first reported that WhatsApp is rolling out its beta version 126.96.36.199 on Android, bringing in Unicode 15.0 emojis. Up to 21 new emojis have been added to the official WhatsApp keyboard for beta testers.
Beta Testers can get the emojis by downloading the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update from the Google Play Store, while those who are yet to see the beta update will be eligible in the coming days.
Another new feature WhatsApp was spotted working on is the ability for users to silence calls from unsaved numbers. When the 'Silence unknown callers' is enabled from the settings menu starting on the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android, they won't be able to successfully initiate a call.
The feature should be able to eliminate scam and spam calls on the platform since the unknown callers will not be able to reach users that have toggled on the 'Silence unknown callers' feature.
