THERE’S a major new Whatsapp update out now, bringing hundreds of new emoji to liven up your chats – this is all you need to know. WhatsApp users are celebrating today after a major new upgrade to the app. Here we are going to describe about Whatsapp update. The Whatsapp update includes over a hundred new emoji to spice up your conversations, bringing a huge range of new pictures, images, smiley faces and more.
Among the most striking new additions in the new emoji are a facepalm, selfie, pregnant woman, a mother and a son, a father with two kids.
However the Whatsapp update also brings a number of new gender diversity and sexuality options, with female versions of many jobs, sports and activity emoji that had previously only had a male symbol.
There is also a new rainbow flag emoji, along with a number of same-sex couples icons.
The Whatsapp update affects users with Android phone, with iOS users already having received the new emoji several need weeks earlier as part of the release of iOS 10.2.
The Whatsapp update was due to be part of Android 7.1 Nougat, but it seems Google is allowing the new emoji to be rolled out to devices running an older version of Android following an earlier beta test.

It’s worth noting that sending the new symbols to friends who haven’t updated yet may pose some problems.
Following the update’s release as part of iOS 10.2, many iPhone users reported that their contacts with older versions of the software were not able to see the new emoji.
Instead of smiley faces or cute animals, they were confronted with black boxes containing a question mark.
The New Emoji isn’t the only new addition coming to Whatsapp update on Android today.
As mentioned, the app can now play any video received in a chat right away, without needing to wait for it to download first.
Videos will still be downloaded to your phone, which will occur in the background, but this update means there’s no need to hold on to start watching.
Also included is animated GIF support, allowing Android users to send and receive GIFs for the first time, and improvements to WhatsApp video calling.
