With the new version of the application installed, the user will have quick access to ethnic emojis , which allow for change in skin color. Also available will be the Spock greeting figure from the Star Treck movie and the controversial middle finger emoji.
The ability to mark messages as “read” or “unread” has also reached the new version of WhatsApp. The feature acts as a reminder so that the user does not forget to answer a conversation, but does not prevent the contact from knowing that their message has been viewed.
