To further customize the functionality of its apps, the Facebook-owned WhatsApp instant messaging app is currently testing its emoticons on the doodle maker option available for its status statuses.
WhatsApp tests official emoticons for Doodling on Stories
The decision to remove the old-school emoticons available in the doodle maker comes after improvements to Doodle’s user interface in WhatsApp in its beta version 2.19.106, WABetaInfo reported on Friday.
Lately, WhatsApp was testing and introducing a host of new features on the beta as well as public versions of the app.
Recently it has been added to allow users to choose a total of 30 audio files to send simultaneously. Previously, users could only share one audio file at a time.
The app is already running on the long-awaited iPad support which is tested with features including Touch ID support, split screen mode, and landscape mode.

In addition, in order to minimize the spread of false information on its platform, WhatsApp is testing the “Transmission Info” and “Frequently Forwarded Message” features, which would allow more than 1.5 billion users to know how many times a message has been transmitted, which could raise questions about its authenticity.
