WhatsApp rolls out large animated emojis for beta testing: All details

WhatsApp is rolling out three new large animated heart emojis for beta testing, according to a report. Notably, the instant messaging app has implemented the feature with the WhatsApp beta for Android 2.22.18.8.

According to a report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is rolling out a new update version 2.23.1.3 through the Google Play Beta program, which will bring three new large animated heart emojis in line with all other heart emoji types/colors.

This development comes a month after the same source reported that WhatsApp is working on 21 new emojis. It was seen that the new emojis are not visible on the emoji keyboard.

Meanwhile, the instant messaging app has recently added several new features and the most recent feature is disappearing messages. Now, the Meta-owned company is working on an extreme version of the same feature, and posts can be viewed once before disappearing.

According to a report from Mashable, WABetaInfo suggests that the extreme version of disappearing messages will be a message that can only be viewed once before disappearing, for both the sender and the recipient.

Initially, the feature was limited to only one option (disappear after seven days), WhatsApp later expanded the disappearing messages feature to also allow messages that disappear after 24 hours or 90 days.

The new feature can be found in the latest WhatsApp beta for Android, version 2.22.25.20. Reportedly, the recipient cannot share or forward the message once a user sends such a message.

WhatsApp already has this feature for photos and videos. When a user sends a one-time photo or video, the person on the other end of the line cannot take a screenshot of it; presumably the same functionality will also be enabled for one-off messages, Mashable reports.

For photos and videos, view once functionality is enabled by choosing an image or video to send and then tapping the circled “1” icon on the right side of the title prompt.

There’s currently a dedicated send button icon with an added padlock for text messages, though the design may change once the feature comes out of beta, according to Mashable.
