WhatsApp has finally break the shackles and now have its very own emoji. Though the emoji looks very much like iOS and Android Ore emojis. The eyes and mouths of the smileys are one of the differences. The animal emoji are all facing different direction. The update is available for its latest Android beta v2.17.364.
