Following the footsteps of Facebook, Twitter and Apple, popular instant-messaging platform WhatsApp will soon roll out custom emojis within the application. The new set of emojis has been released for the beta version for Android. WhatsApp's new emojis' seem highly similar to Apple's custom emojis.

Apart from Apple, Facebook and Twitter have their own custom emoji set within the app.

"At a glance these could be confused for Apple's own emojis. Side-by-side the differences are clear for some emojis, but others are very close to what Apple displays," a blog on post on Emojipedia said on Monday.

Since this is only a beta version, these emojis might change before public release or not even make a public release.

In July, WhatsApp announced that it has a billion users who send messages on it daily.

WhatsApp also said that users send 55 billion messages per day, 4.5 billion photos and 1 billion videos, has 1.3 billion monthly active users and 60 languages are supported on the platform.
