WhatsApp's new feature leaves users sulky

Zee Media Bureau

One of the latest changes offered by WhatsApp is the blown up version of emojis on the platform has failed to find favour with app users.

Many users are not very pleased with the feature which blurs the difference in the emojis of WhatsApp and Facebook. Some of the reactions on Twitter go on like this:

"Why does my WhatsApp emoji's look like they got botox"

"Whatsapp emoji, why you go through mutation"

"The new whatsapp emoji is freaking disgusting???"

"These new WhatsApp emoji are creepy af"

"Whatsapp emoji changed omggggg why so uglehhhhhhh"

"No, whatsapp. I don't want the emoji to look so big, and I don't want to use so many emojis. Stop making me look interested in the convo."

But while many have called for a return of mini emojis, others are pleased with services like, doodling on images and adding emojis before sending them.

Users will also now be able to  'zoom in' feature when recording videos.

Another feature found interesting is in which users can open calls from the lock screen. Also, a new widget lets the user quickly jump to a recent chat or see which have unread messages.
