|Name of the feature?||Animated orange heart emoji|
|Compatibility?||WhatsApp beta for Android 18.104.22.168 is marked as the compatible update.|

In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 126.96.36.199 update, we shared news about a new feature available to some beta testers: more large animated heart emojis. Thanks to this feature, any heart emoji will be now animated in the same way as the default red heart emoji.
After some time, a user shared a tweet under the announcement of the feature by reporting that the orange heart emoji was not compatible with this feature: he was right because WhatsApp forgot to implement the orange heart emoji as a compatible emoji. After releasing the WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update, we discovered that this is exactly what’s changed in the update:
As you can see in this video capture, the orange heart emoji is now fully compatible with the animation: just send the orange heart emoji to a conversation and you can see it will show up with an animation!
It is true that the new animation for these emojis has been released after installing the WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206 update, but it may not have reached all beta testers: it means it may still not be available for everyone. In this case, if any heart emoji is not animated, it means the feature is not available for your WhatsApp account and you should wait for a future update to get it.
