WhatsApp has recently submitted a new update through the TestFlight Beta Program, bringing the version up to 188.8.131.52.
Let’s find out together what is new ..
- All features listed in this article will be available in the next update on the App Store, the 2.19.40 official update.
- If you want to join the WhatsApp Messenger beta program on TestFlight (but the beta program is full), you can consider to join my Discord Server, in order to receive push notifications when slots are available, or check out my TestFlight page every day.
When you receive a notification of a text message from a contact or group, you will see a new emoji 👥 in the notification text label:
It seems WhatsApp is implementing the same features in Android and iOS at the same time. WhatsApp added in the 2.19.73 Android beta update two transgender emojis, that aren’t natively available in the Emoji Unicode.
Today, WhatsApp has implemented the same emojis in this iOS update.
These two emojis are not available in the keyboard. This is because the keyboard can be managed by iOS only. If you would like to send these emojis, you need to follow these instructions:
- FLAG EMOJI: Copy –> 🏳️⚧ <-- and paste this code in WhatsApp.
- SYMBOL EMOJI: Copy –> ⚧ <-- and paste this code in WhatsApp.
You can also ask to Android users having WhatsApp for Android 2.19.73 and newer to send those emojis.
