Many users we have warned of these animated emoticons that are circulating on WhatsApp for you to download (don’t do that, it is a scam). If you have seen this message in string, alert the user that you have been commanded and do not do anything. If you can, delete the message.
The goal of this scam is that the user subscribes to SMS premium. Never give out your phone number for anything. WhatsApp never added functionality in this way. Suspicion always that you will be redirected to an external page, and you ask for a phone number.
