WhatsApp beta adds avatar sticker control and Unicode 15.1 emojis

In the latest series of updates from Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp, users can look forward to a fresh assortment of features aimed at enhancing their messaging experience. Among the forthcoming additions, reports suggest a feature that allows users to convert images into stickers.

According to insights from WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp beta for Android 2.24.6.8 introduces settings that offer users control over who can utilize their avatars in stickers.

This new level of control enables users to manage the usage of their personal images within the app, providing an added layer of privacy and security, as reported by HT Tech.

Recent updates from WhatsApp also include the integration of Unicode 15.1 emojis into the app's keyboard, a move intended to enrich the overall user experience. Furthermore, there are speculations about Meta exploring the integration of messages from third-party instant messaging services into WhatsApp, suggesting a potential move towards enhanced interoperability.

The extent to which Meta will pursue interoperability remains uncertain, and not all features observed in beta testing are guaranteed to be included in the official app. While some changes, such as increased interoperability, could greatly benefit users, Meta may prioritize other developments based on user feedback and strategic goals. Nevertheless, monitoring beta testing offers valuable insights into potential future updates for WhatsApp users.

In response to Europe's Digital Markets Act (DMA) regulations, WhatsApp is reportedly in the process of developing a chat interoperability feature that could allow users to send messages to third-party applications like Signal or Telegram. This proactive step aims to comply with DMA regulations, which require large companies, known as 'gatekeepers,' to facilitate communication between various messaging apps within a six-month period.


According to a report from WABetainfo, WhatsApp is actively working on a new section dedicated to third-party chats, currently available in the WhatsApp beta version 2.24.5.18, build version 2.24.5.18. A leaked screenshot from WABetainfo suggests that the chat interoperability feature is designed as an opt-in function, indicating that users will need to manually activate the feature to use it.
