WhatsApp is working on a new feature, which Telegram users have been using for years.
Once again, WhatsApp is working on a “new” feature that Telegram users have had at their disposal for years. It already did it just a few weeks ago with the arrival of the option to use the same account in the messaging app on several mobiles at the same time, and now it has done it again with another completely different feature: the animated emojis.
For some time now, Telegram adds new animated emojis to its collection with each update of the application, and today we can already find a good handful of them. WhatsApp seems to want to follow the same steps, and the latest beta version of the application hide new animated emoticons that today we have been able to see for the first time.
Animated emojis will come to WhatsApp soon
As confirmed by the people of WABetaInfo After analyzing the code of the latest available version of WhatsApp Beta, clues have been found that point to the arrival of animated emoticons to the application. For now, only one animated emoji has been found, and it is unknown how many emojis available on WhatsApp the company plans to animate.
As it happens in Telegram, WhatsApp animated emojis appear in the chat window with a larger size than those who do not have movement. It has been revealed that the app employs the popular bookstore Lottiewhich allows developers include animations in apps in a simple way. As can be seen in the screenshot, the emoji retains a good quality despite its larger size.
At the moment it is too soon to know more details about this function, which should come to WhatsApp with a future update. As usual, we recommend downloading the latest available version of WhatsApp and always keeping the app updated to avoid missing out on this type of news.
