WhatsApp after pushing out a new update for the Stable version of Windows Phone application, has now also pushed a new update for its Web version of the application. The new WhatsApp Web version has been updated to 0.2.7304.0.

The new update brings features like Verified business accounts and new set or design of emoji’s developed based on the Unicode. In the latest WhatsApp Web version you will now find a new set of emoji’s which have been developed based on the new Unicode.

The new set of emoji’s have been included in the WhatsApp Web along with Android and Windows Phone users. The new set of emoji’s are not expected to arrive for the iOS users as the company is not willing to modify the new design for iOS users.

Another new feature rolled out for WhatsApp Web is the Verified Business accounts. The team has now made it easier to recognize verified businesses with 3 levels of verification’s. Users will now be able to check the contact’s profile to see the type of account being used.

If the account is a business account then users will be able to see one of the following:

  • Verified. WhatsApp has verified that an authentic brand owns this account. A verified account has a green checkmark badge in its profile.
  • Confirmed. WhatsApp has confirmed that the phone number of this account matches the phone number for this business. A confirmed account has a gray checkmark badge in its profile.
  • Business account. This account is using the WhatsApp Business app, but hasn’t been confirmed nor verified by WhatsApp. A business account has a gray question mark badge in its profile.

The latest update for the WhatsApp Web is currently available and you would need to clear your browser’s cache to get the updated WhatsApp Web version. You can get the latest Web version by clicking this link.
