Finally, the long awaited feature has been launched. And Whatsapp is now getting emoticons with animations. No need to look to still emoticons, while there is an option of getting animated ones! What have you expected from new update of Whatsapp, any thoughts? Well, at this point of time, it is in beta version and still number of tests is ongoing. As the feature is new to this app, so the tests are on big scale level. And yet we are excited, aren’t we?
If you can see the above posted heart shaped emoticon, it is a still in the picture but it beats as per new update from Whatsapp. It seems good. However, there is a problem with this feature by this far. Whenever a message is being sent, the recipient doesn’t get the animated emoticon. For example, I am going to send a text message with an animated emoticon enabled, it will show me the animation plus its big size, but the recipient will not be able to see the actual size and animation of the emoticon, vice versa. Do you find it useful?
Still, there is nothing to be worried about, as this trial is in beta phase. Crowd of loads of staff is already testing the app and its features. So, there is a hope to have the bugs fixed version of this app.
There is no big requirement to run Whatsapp, the minimum requirements of an android system would be Android OS 2.1 or above to get it. And it offers unlimited internet data plan, however, tablet devices are not supported yet.
So, tell us which of the emoticons you want to see in the list of animated emoticons. And share your ideas on what do you think of new updates from Whatsapp and what do you think of the acquisition of Facebook and Whatsapp.
