An option with very similar function, which allows you to add emojis as hashtags with images ha been rolled out with Instagram earlier. But this new feature in Whatsapp makes the emoji adding to texts, status, about ad everywhere else they have emoji adding option way easier compared to other platforms. Similarly, Google also had rolled out an emoji suggestion feature with Gboard Keyboard which did let users add emojis as per the word they type from the suggestion panel on the top of keyboard panel.
If you are a WhatsApp beta member, you can install the latest update from Google Play store to try out the new feature. While texting, for example, in emoji search bar you type “Angel” to get angel emoji, Smiling face to see it, and so on. The update it not rolled out to everyone. Only the beta testers will get the update for now, and the normal users will receive the option within a week or two.
