WhatsApp beta 2.18.138 – New improvements and changes
This is version 2.18.138 which you can access by becoming a beta tester or, even more simply, by downloading it via APK.
There are two new and very interesting improvements and features WhatsApp devs implemented in the new beta version.
The first feature concerns the Top Emoji. The very name of the feature tells us what it is for, namely, to bring the most used emoji to the first lines, so we can send the favorite emojis to everyone we chat with even faster than before.
The second and a more important feature is the introduction of “wa.me” domain support that can be used to open chats directly in the browser.
