WhatsApp has released a bug-fix update to address emoji keyboard crashes in the Android beta.

Several users were experiencing a crash when using the emoji keyboard, reports WABetaInfo.

Moreover, many users also reported issues with configuring their avatars, while accessing the privacy section and adding text over images using the drawing editor.

Many users observed that the update had been installed automatically due to the Google Play Store’s auto-download settings.

“The fix is rolling out after installing the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update from the Google Play Store, so make sure to update to this build in order to use a version of WhatsApp without the crash,” the report said.

On Thursday, the messaging platform faced a global outage, including in India, due to “connectivity issues” which lasted for about 20 minutes.

When a user posted, “fix it before it is morning in India, don’t want to miss out on the Good Morning messages”, the Meta-owned platform replied: “We’re back, we don’t want you to miss them!”

According to the outage monitor website DownDetector, 61 percent of people had reported problems while sending messages, 35 percent while using the application, and 4 percent while using the website.

On Downdetector, reports of the users peaked at over 41,000.
