WhatsApp gets own emoji

WhatsApp unveiled it’s own emoji, emojipedia reports. Until now, WhatsApp was using Apple’s emoticons/smileys on all platforms.

The differences with the ‘old’ Apple emoji are minimal. Below is a list of some new smileys, do you see the difference?

By launching its own emoji, WhatsApp follows the direction of Facebook Messenger and Twitter. The new emoji are in beta for Android, but it’s expected they will be rolled out to all platforms.
