Today WhatsApp has released a new update on the AppStore, bringing the version number up to 2.17.40.
This update has some improvements, one of which is something about the emojis ..
WhatsApp has improved the management of emojis in this update, allowing you to view your most recent used emojis in the drawing tool.
WhatsApp will store a certain number of emojis that’s variable, depending on your display size: in fact you can notice that more emojis are available if you use your device in landscape.
This is a very interesting feature that will help us to save time, but WhatsApp is working more on a secret feature in order to continue to improve the selection of emojis..
This isn’t visible yet in the latest update (so it’s a feature disabled by default but we can tell you that WhatsApp is working on a feature that will allow to search emojis using some key words.
This is not a feature that will be remotely enabled, but at the moment it needs a new WhatsApp update on AppStore in order to be compatible with all languages.
Note that this has been already added and enabled in the Android version (tap here for details).
These features work on iPhone 5s or later and iOS 9 or later.
