WhatsApp Black Dot Prank Message Crashes App: Here's How It Works

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.

Lurking within this seemingly innocent text are tens of thousands of invisible "left-to-right" and "right-to-left" control characters that can derail your device, according to Neowin.
