WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger To Get A New Set Of Emojis

Facebook launches Messenger Lite in US, UK, Canada & Ireland

This was thanks to a launch in big markets like India and Brazil.

A bit over six years ago, Facebook launched its Messenger mobile apps for iPhone and Android in the United States and Canada, foreshadowing the eventual transfer of chat functionality out of its main social networking app. It originally launched in five countries, Kenya, Tunisia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Venezuela, in October 2016. However, the sad bit is the fact that there doesn't exist any such thing as Messenger Lite for iPhones and some sources indicate that Facebook has no plans underway to release it. But, the expansion of the app to Facebook's top developed markets mean that people who want to save data charges like teenagers can take advantage of the app.

Facebook messenger Android App was mainly available in nearly 100 developing markets.

Previously Messenger Lite was aimed at emerging markets, where many people use older phones with slower internet speeds, or smaller storage.

According to Emojipedia, WhatsApp's new emojis were discovered in the latest Android beta where it seems that for the most part, it has been inspired by the same emojis that Apple uses for its iOS platform.
