WhatsApp gets another "crash message" that hangs app and phone

What is The Black Circle of Whatsapp? Dont Panic! Beware, users! This Whatsapp forward can cause your phone to crash
Mandy Jefferson | 07 May, 2018, 13:53

As you can see in the screenshots leaked, WhatsApp is now working on the Greeting Message feature, which sends a greeting message to a user either on their first message or after 14 days of inactivity.

Let's hope the developers read the feedback they are receiving and move quickly to remove this message bomb before it becomes widespread and more WhatsApp users have their smartphone's operating system crash.

A new forward message is now making the rounds on WhatsApp causing the messenger app to jam when the recipient taps on the message box.

WhatsApp has a new update (again) and it's one you're going to love.

But unlike other new features such as the highly awaited sticker album and the option to save voice messages (and listen to them) before sending anything out, this new WhatsApp update is available right now.

While Combatting Cancer, John McCain Urges Joe Biden to Remain in Politics
Because of his aggressive cancer advancement and related health issues, he was unable to return to this session of the senate. He then returned home to Arizona to recover, do physical therapy and continue cancer treatment at the Mayo Clinic.


As per the report, the message bears some unknown special characters which crash the application.

This is bad news for numerous iPhone users.

This isn't the first time this kind of message bugs have emerged. However, it is better avoiding such message forwards. So if you receive a message saying "This is very interesting!" with a crying laughing emoji, then you'll probably have to restart your device. Should you choose to tap on the black dot, be prepared to have your phone freeze on you momentarily. The message although looks like a plain text, includes hidden symbols between the emoji and a quotation mark at the end of the sentence. However, this becomes hard because when you don't want to click on the message notifications that have piled up and accidentally open the wrong chat.

Reportedly, these WhatsApp messages are nothing but prank and there seem to be nothing malicious about them.
