For now, Facebook-owned the social messaging app is testing this official emojis on the doodle-maker option available for its Status Stories.
The current emojis in the doodle picker will be replaced by a new set of emojis. But, the new emojis look similar to the emojis that are currently being used for chats.

To minimize the spread of fake news on its platform, WhatsApp is also testing the “forwarding info” and “Frequently Forwarded Message” feature to let it over 1.5 billion users know how many times a message has been forwarded, which could raise questions on its authenticity.
WhatsApp is reportedly developing several new features in different sections. The feature is currently under development and not available for Android beta users as of now. It's expected to be released soon given this is a minor update and it will be available for everyone.
