WhatsApp users on Android can finally rejoice with a whole new bunch of emojis, available via an update on Google Play. The new update will now bring eight tabs of emojis to WhatsApp instead of five. These include a tab with sports emojis, one with flags, bulbs and beverages.
According to Android Police, the new emojis include an upside down face, popcorn box, robot faces, a nerd face, an urn, turkey and even a middle finger emoji. These emojis were only available for iOS and web users earlier. Google Play India has not yet listed the WhatsApp update yet, but we can expect Android version 2.12.441 to launch in India soon.
WhatsApp recently introduced a new update which increases the number of people one can have in a group chat. The new update allows for 256 members, which was limited to 100 prior to the update. The company also announced that WhatsApp now has 1 billion monthly users and that 42 billion messages are sent on it each day.
