Now, use WhatsApp without opening the app? Here's how

WhatsApp

WhatsApp Business app, which is now available only for Android users already has over three million active users, and with the addition of the iOS application, the user base will take a surge.

A WhatsApp prank message, featuring a black dot, is making the rounds in the Facebook-owned communications app, crashing it for users who accept the message's dare.

According to Reddit threads and YouTube videos, the message arrives in an assortment of structures and works by concealing a pack of characters that at that point get extended when you tap the message. The second message tells you exactly what will happen if you tap on a black dot that is part of the message. The other says, "This is very interesting" with an emoji of a laughing face, though it's unlikely you'll be laughing once your phone crashes.

So far, users have reported that the message bomb has been capable of shutting down both the Android and iOS versions of WhatsApp, but only Android phones have fallen victim completely to the bug. The messages are written in a plain and simple text together with emojis which is what makes it hard for the users to identify if it's a normal message or a bug. For this situation you have to keep an eye out for a dark dot in the center of a WhatsApp message, however, evidently, the bug message isn't generally so natural to spot. Simply avoid these type of text messages or use another messaging app. In some cases, it freezes the app. However, it is still recommended to not click on them.

If you get this kind of message, then make sure that you don't tap it and try to delete it as fast as you can.

We don't know how much time will WhatsApp take to resolve this issue.

WhatsApp is the world's most popular messaging app because of the premium features that it offers. You will also have to copy the message from the Pastebin link and not through the thread itself.
