WhatsApp has received a new software update that is now available to all users via the Google Play beta programme channel.

The latest beta update for WhatsApp on Android brings a tonne of new emojis, and also changes a few of the existing ones. However, some of the highly anticipated features such as dark mode and the ability to natively play Netflix trailer videos that were recently spotted testing are yet to arrive on the app’s public beta or stable versions.

The new splash screen with a dark theme is still there in the latest beta build of WhatsApp for Android.

The rollout of WhatsApp’s latest beta update, which carries the build number 2.19.315, was first spotted by WABetaInfo.

We can confirm that the aforementioned update is now available for users who have enlisted in the WhatsApp beta testing program for the app’s Android client.

As for features, well, the update doesn’t bring any. And an APK teardown is also yet to be done that could reveal hints of any new features that are in the pipeline.

If you are unable to join Google Play’s beta testing programme for WhatsApp, you can sideload the latest version via APK Mirror.
