The animated heart WhatsApp situation has been complicated – the feature appeared for iOS users back in January, but shortly after it was pulled down. Now that it’s clear that a version of the same emoji is headed to WhatsApp for Android, the same feature might be returning to iOS as well. There’s a screenshot showing the heart emoji in question (in different colors), and in order to use it the recipient must have this feature enabled as well. There’s no information about the concrete timeline for rolling out the animated heart emoji to the stable WhatsApp version but given our previous experience with similar beta leaks, it shouldn’t be too long.
In 2022, you feel as though half of your vocabulary is missing if you can’t respond with an animated emoji. Putting jokes aside, this picto-inspired form of communication has permeated every aspect of our everyday existence. So it’s fantastic to learn that an animated heart emoji collection is on the way for WhatsApp for Android, right? The feature was discovered by WABetaInfo, and the website claims that beta testers have already begun receiving it.
