If you are addicted to WhatsApp, you certainly know that the developers of the app constantly roll out updated versions of our beloved app, and yet it never stops to amaze us to see that quite every day we can download another better version of WhatsApp. Android is the platform that usually receives first (and more often) the updates since it has the majority of users, but the other platforms are kept updated as well. That said, let’s see what’s new today.
A new APK version of WhatsApp is already available for Android users. This latest updated version is number 2.16.371 and weighs 31.8 MB. Even if it does not bring any new features, it comes with the usual performance improvements and bug fixes, so it is certainly advisable to download it. If you are disappointed because this new version does not bring new features, remember that recently the app has been updated a lot and now Android users of WhatsApp are allowed to make Voice and Video Calls, can send and receive animated GIFs, and a lot more.
And these are just some of the enhancements that have been done recently. Furthermore, according to some rumors another great feature will be added soon to the app: the Multiple Video Calling feature, which will make it possible to add two or more users in the same video chat. But, for the moment, these rumors have to be confirmed by the developers of WhatsApp.
Now let’s see how this latest 2.16.371 beta version of WhatsApp can be installed on your Android device. As usual, there are two ways. The first one is via the official Android Store, and it is applicable only if you are a Beta Tester of WhatsApp. If you are not yet a Beta Tester but wish to join the service, you simply have to open the Google Play Store webpage and tap on the “BECOME A TESTER” button.
Once you have followed this procedure you can open the official Android store, look for the update you are interested in and tap on the “Install” button. The other way to download this latest APK file of WhatsApp for Android is through some safe sources such as APKMirror.
