What is The Black Circle of Whatsapp? Dont Panic!
We're not really sure why people would create and forward messages that do nothing except crash your app or your smartphone.
"As with any message bomb, it involves sending and receiving a specially crafted message with hidden symbols in-between spaces". And, it could be annoying to restart the phone and the app when you are amidst important work. The message that is being circulated widely on WhatsApp by its users reads, "If you touch the black point the your WhatsApp will hang". Another message says, "This is very interesting" with an emoji of a laughing face.
"In both cases, the message includes special characters that don't display visibly but are used to change text behavior".

As these buggy messages just crash the WhatsApp, there nothing malicious about the prank. It is specially crafted because it is created to lure users into tapping a portion of the text so the hidden symbols are expanded, which then overloads the app and even the entire operating system of the smartphone.
To use this link, type https://wa.me/phone number of the contact you want the send the text to. People are forwarding a message on WhatsApp, which stops the functioning of WhatsApp if you tap that message. You may have already come across it and wondered how just tapping on a single emoji can cause an app to freeze and become unresponsive. However, it is still recommended to not click on them.
As per Reddit threads and YouTube videos, the message comes in a variety of forms, and works by hiding a bunch of characters that then get expanded when you tap the message. WhatsApp itself presently can't seem to make any remark on the bug or issue a fix to secure against it, so we can't yet make certain about precisely what's happening. Sometimes, it might need you to uninstall and reinstall the app. Until WhatsApp takes care of this matter, which should take a few days at most, your best bet is to take that social media holiday you've been thinking about. Also, avoid forwarding such messages to others.
