It is merely a week since whatsapp reportedly jammed with new year’s massive messages sent by its millions of users – happening to lock out its users from several countries from accessing the app’s services. And now again, another bug has been found in the app stiring an ending discos on twiter.
“A strange bug that affects select WhatsApp users is replacing UK flag emojis with a black alternative – and no one seems to know why
According to The Sun, one user tweeted: “When I type ‘England’ on WhatsApp, the George’s Cross flag comes up above keyboard as it should appear…”
They continued: “But when I send, it’s coming up as a black flag.”
The bewildered app user shared an image of the issue, showcasing the mysterious black flag emojis.
WhatsApp provides an official black flag emoji that looks exactly the same as the one in the user’s image, so it’s not clear if this is simply a bug or hoax.
