Delhi : 21 new emojis are now being tested for Android beta users by Meta-owned WhatsApp. Users may now transmit these emoticons directly from the main WhatsApp keyboard, according to WABetaInfo, eliminating the need to download an additional keyboard. The most recent Unicode 15.0 release includes these new emojis.

The 21 brand-new emojis had not yet been released because they were still under development, thus they were not yet accessible on the official WhatsApp keyboard. The use of a different keyboard allowed users to continue send them.

In addition, the new emojis fix a prior problem where users could receive the emojis but were unable to transmit them without utilising workarounds.

Regardless of the programme version they are using, some users may now be able to access the new emojis through the official WhatsApp keyboard, according to the report.

Updating WhatsApp to the most recent version is still recommended to increase the chance that your account will be approved for the new emoticons.

"Suppress unknown callers" is a feature that will soon be available on the Meta-owned instant messaging service. Users will be able to block calls from unknown numbers, but they will still appear in the notification centre and call list.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp's Android beta version is currently working on a "mute unknown callers" function. It would be great if the feature also assisted consumers in avoiding spam calls in addition to reducing interruptions.

Users can reach the toggle for the "mute unknown calls" feature in the app's settings, according to the report. Calls from unknown numbers will be muted once enabled, but they will continue to show up in the call list and notification centre.
