We all know WhatsApp has introduced a new feature by which we can search emoticons. This feature comes handy when we do not want to waste time in finding a particular emoticon for our chat or words are less to describe our feelings. What most of the people don’t know is along with this search feature WhatsApp has also updated its emoticon’s stock and there are several other emoticons which are not shown in the emoticon bar. These are the emojis which appear only when you type a particular keyword. Now the difficult task here is to find those hidden emoticons. To help you with that we have compiled a list of secret WhatsApp emoticons with their respective search codes/keywords/phrase.
