WhatsApp update adds new emoji


Emma Clark

A new update for WhatsApp is being rolled out slowly to all users. It adds new emoji and reorganises how they are displayed.

WhatsApp version 2.12.441 is rolling out now, complete with new emoji and a reorganised emoji panel.

The update arrives just in time for Valentine's Day and adds characters like a champagne bottle and popcorn. There are also icons for an upside down face, a nerd, a robot, and a middle finger; hopefully you won't be using that one this weekend.

These emoji have been available as part of the WhatsApp beta for a couple of months, but are now rolling out to all WhatsApp users. The Play Store's changelog is yet to be updated for this version, so it's not yet clear if there are other changes or fixes included.

This latest update should be available to all in the next few days.
