WhatsApp's redesigned emojis

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.
