WhatsApp 2.16.274 Download Available for Android Devices with New Emojis


WhatsApp is currently one of the most used mobile messaging applications out there, as it’s used daily by over 1 billion people from all over the world. Today we will talk about a new WhatsApp version that has been released for Android devices. It seems that this new WhatsApp version comes with redesigned emojis, which look quite similar with the ones introduced in iOS.

It seems that the new WhatsApp version also comes with 37 new emoji which can be found on the new BETA version. This new emoji include more single parent families, more realistic faces, water gun, a rainbow flag etc.

The WhatsApp 2.16.274 APK (installation) file has been increased by 3732KB due to the new emoji, but there are also over 2130 files that have been modified. There are also new files added to the installation file, apart from the 37 new emoji, such as: wa_exoplayer_video_view.xml or wa_exoplayer_playback_control_view.xml, which clearly shows that the new video and music player on ExoPlayer is about to be released soon. There weren’t many reports about this feature until now, but most likely, we’ll hear more information in the near future.
