Good news for users of Android WhatsApp.
The last messaging application includes new emojis already available for several months on the iPhone.
These new emojis include new faces like the face with notes in the mouth, a thoughtful emoji, another somewhat geeky and one eye up, among many others.
The update includes these emojis is now available, but is coming slowly to Android users. What you can do to have the new version 2.12.372, it is to enter the site WhatsApp (click this link) from your phone, press the download button and allow downloads from unknown sources in your device (Settings> Security > unknown sources enabled).
I recommend to deactivate this option once you’ve downloaded the upgrade, thus only applications that are in the Play Store will be installed.
Emojis which and how many are new? The site Mashable has a very helpful guide (in English) with all the 100 emoji, so there you can identify what new faces can start using.

The addition of these emojis in WhatsApp for Android does not mean that all Google mobile platform already includes emojis because the only app you can write and show. However, it does not be long before Android users, using WhatsApp or not, can now avail these emojis.
Hiroshi Lockheimer, senior vice president of Android, Chrome OS and Chromecast, said Thursday in a wireless update Twitter (OTA, in English), coming soon to Android – starting with the Nexus devices.
