WhatsApp is updated very often and today we will talk about the latest BETA version of the application. First of all, you should know that the WhatsApp 2.16.256 is the latest BETA version for Android devices and it comes with some giant emoticons that most of the users will most likely enjoy using.

Keep in mind that the giant emoticons are currently active only in the BETA version of the application, but they should be released for the public version sometime in the near future.

WhatsApp: How The Giants Emoticons Work

The way giant emoticons work in WhatsApp is quite simple, as everything will depend on how many of them you will include in a message. For example, if you insert four smileys or more, you will see them in normal-sized, but if you put only two smileys, they will show up bigger. And, you’ve guessed it, if you put just only one, you will get an extra-large emoticon.

WhatsApp 2.16.256: How To Install On Your Android Device

The WhatsApp 2.16.256 is currently in BETA phase, which means that in order to install it on your Android device via the Google Play Store, you will have to become a WhatsApp BETA tester. In order to do that, you will need to open this Google Play Store webpage and tap on the “BECOME A TESTER” button. Finally, open the official Android store, search for WhatsApp 2.16.256 and install it on your smartphone. Once the installation is complete, you will be able to test out the new “giant” emoticons.

HINT: Keep in mind that the WhatsApp 2.16.256 is currently in BETA phase which means that you might find bugs and other errors which you should report as soon as possible, so that the developers can fix them before the next STABLE version of the application is being released.
