WhatsApp has been updating its software every week, thus making it more one of a kind and encouraging its users stay connected 24×7. By now, you are aware of the new customised features introduced by WhatsApp. Besides unmarking the read receipts, the social app has introduced the mark read as unread feature in its latest version.
Besides this, WhatsApp also added several skin tone variants in its 2.12.161 and 2.12.159 beta versions. However, it seems that WhatsApp has been secretly working on the ‘middle finger’ icon and may soon appear on your handsets.
Stephen Wilkinson discovered the ‘middle finger’ emoji/emoticon on one of the zip folders of WhatsApp. He mentions that the rude icon is hidden within WhatsApp and can be sent to other users.
The middle finger emoticon is basically hidden in the apk file of 2.12.200 version of WhatsApp and is hidden in the hidden codes available in its hidden folder. Media reports also state that Microsoft dared to add the middle finger emoticon to its Windows 10 update.
