Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.1 update to developers, one week after seeding the second beta and two weeks after releasing the macOS Mojave update.

macOS Mojave introduces a new method of installing software updates, so after the initial beta has been installed using the appropriate profile from the Developer Center, additional betas can be downloaded through opening up System Preferences and choosing the "Software Update" option.

The 10.14.1 update includes support for Group FaceTime, a feature that was removed during the beta testing period. Group FaceTime, which lets you chat with up to 32 people at once, is also present in the iOS 12.1 beta.

macOS Mojave 10.14.1 introduces more than 70 new emoji characters that are also available in iOS 12.1 and watchOS 5.1. There are new options for red hair, curly hair, no hair, and gray hair, along with characters to represent superheroes, cold face, party face, pleading face, and face with hearts.

There are a number of new animals and food items like kangaroo, parrot, lobster, mango, lettuce, and cupcake. Tweaks have been made to some existing emoji as well. The iPhone emoji, for example, has been updated to look like the iPhone X with no bezels or Home button.

We didn't find any other significant new features in the first two developer betas of macOS Mojave, so it's not clear if there are any additional changes. The update likely includes performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that have been discovered since the release of the Mojave update.

Should new features be found in the third beta, we'll update this post.

macOS Mojave is a major update that brings features like a systemwide Dark Mode, stacks for organizing messy desktops, new Finder capabilities, new tools for taking screenshots, a Continuity Camera option for easily transferring photo scans and documents from iPhone to Mac, and more.

I don't know, native NVMe support ('https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/mp5-1-mojave-10-14-1-dp3-bootrom-140-0-0-0-0-has-nvme-support.2132317/page-59#post-26633623') for the classic Mac Pro (5,1) seems a pretty big deal to me....but sure, keep talking about emojis! ;)

Same issue here. I have reported this issue to Apple. I would encourage you to do the same.
Just testing out new features for Chinese government don’t worry guys. Green light will be fixed with next update and everything will be fine again.

simply if I'm interested in a product I try to inform myself based on the experience of who owns it.
Many on youtube to which I asked if they have crackling problems respond or saying that they have never had or that they have solved with Mojave.
Oh ok that's interesting because I cancelled my order of Macbook Pro 2018 which I'm super disappointed as I need a MacBook but not a defective one !
Where I reside there aren't any Apple Stores so that's a real bummer!
And to top it off you cannot return your product !
This is a bug investment for me since it costs a lost because of the import duty on Apple products ! I want to know if it is really sorted out !
I just chatted with Apple Support U.S. and they said that the investigation and the engineering team is still working on fix and they will push an update !
Until I see the release notes stating a fix I unfortunately will have to wait to put my money on the purchase of a MacBook Pro
