WhatsApp Messenger beta for Android Community Report

Here we are yet again with another WhatsApp Messenger update to test out thoroughly. This particular beta brings many changes to the way emojis look and fixes sticker related issues that were appearing for some users using prior versions of the app.

Redesigned emojis

The total number of redesigned emojis is 373 and all of them have some minor, but still noticeable tweaks. For example, some of them now have lighter shadows, brighter highlights, different colors and object alignments. All of these changes result in overall more pleasing, though flat-looking emojis.

Fixes for stickers

After the activation of the sticker feature in earlier versions of WhatsApp, there were also reports that some users were actually not able to select items from the list with stickers. The newest update apparently resolves these issues, but if you are still unable to select stickers, be sure to file a bug report. For those who are not familiar with the way to do so, please, take a look at our guide, which briefly explains "How to report bugs for WhatsApp Messenger on Android".

Both, the tweaked emoji set and sticker fixes, are available for all beta testers who have the latest 2.18.384 release of WhatsApp installed on their devices.
