WhatsApp’s latest Android beta version brings redesigned emojis and includes hints of a Night Mode. The latest Android beta 2.19.139 update packs as many as 155 redesigned emojis and you should be able to check them out once you download the latest beta. The new emojis is expected to be included in the next Google Play stable release as well as in the next Web update. Notably, the Dark Mode feature that was spotted in previous WhatsApp beta updates before being removed, has now been renamed to Night Mode in the latest version. The feature is still under development and hasn’t been enabled as of now. It is possible that we will see Night Mode live in the future WhatApp beta versions.

The tipster says WhatsApp has fully redesigned some emojis, but for others they just applied some small changes. We can confirm that the new emojis are live in the latest beta release.

Separately, WABetaInfo also discovered that the v2.19.139 beta app shows traces of Night Mode, a feature that is still under development. It’s not enabled yet, so you won’t see it even if you’re on the latest update. The new update suggests that Dark Mode, a feature that has been spotted in testing in several past updates, has been renamed to Night Mode.
