WhatsApp for Android (Play Store)
After several beta releases WhatsApp has finally released a new version for those who are eagerly looking forward to the official Google Play Store update. The latest version v2.12.250 includes all the features we've seen in the beta updates.
With this version you will be able to use your smileys in different skin tones as was previously only possible in the iOS app or WhatsApp web app via your desktop browser.
Also present in the Play Store version is now the middle finger emoji 'reverse hand with the middle finger up'. Previously, this emoji was hidden in the beta release and now directly available from the keyboard.
There are also a set of new custom notifications released. This allows you to temporarily block chat conversations for example, eight hours a week or a year. There is also the ability to mark a conversation as unread and mark as low data usage for voice calls.
There are more features available that were not available in the beta as language support and the ability to save messages or contacts.
