WhatsApp Android beta brings a bunch of new emoji

We all love emoji. I mean they have become a necessity in our modern communication. From smiley faces, winks and much more, we just need them. But one thing we need to agree is that one can never have enough emoji, right?

That said, WhatsApp might be bringing a bunch of new emoji on Android. According to Android Police, the latest WhatsApp beta adds the new emoji from Unicode 9.0. The emoji have already debuted on iOS 10.2 and Android 7.1, but if you don’t have 7.1 you can still use them with WhatsApp.


Most of the new emoji are professions, skin colors, and gender-based, but there are some new unique one like Clown face, selfie, fox face, avocado, bacon, a girl and a boy doing a facepalm and many more.

If you can’t wait to finally get this emoji, You can sign up for the WhatsApp beta on the Play Store, or you can as well grab version 2.17.44 beta manually from APK Mirror. Once you sign up you’ll be offered an update to the latest beta, which should have all of the above emoji in it.
