WhatsApp UWP betas are becoming more and more feature-rich. Now that dark mode has been added, the developers have turned their attention to emoji shortcuts.

As reported by WABetaInfoWhatsApp beta version 2.2206.1.0 includes the emoji shortcut feature, which will allow you to access relevant emoji faster when you first type certain keywords with colons.

Although this feature previously existed in WhatsApp, it is new in the UWP beta.

It’s been a turbulent time for emoji in the wider tech sphere thanks to the scandal surrounding Windows 11, so this news offers a change of pace. Unless you think anything involving Meta is just as painful, in which case, thanks for reading this far.

If you want to catch up on other WhatsApp UWP beta news, don’t forget about the recently added dark mode feature, or the fact that you can download the beta from the Microsoft Store right now. This last point raises a question: what are you still doing here? Go enjoy WhatsApp. Experience quick access to emoji with the new shortcut feature. Keep sharing important communications with friends and family under Meta’s watchful eyes.
