With over 1.2 billion monthly active users, we can easily say that WhatsApp is one of the most used mobile messaging applications out there. Today we will talk about the latest WhatsApp BETA version that has been released for devices running on Android OS.
The latest WhatsApp BETA version for Android OS is 2.17.160 and it can already be downloaded and installed on your device via the Google Play Store. However, we will explain how you can do this at the end of this article. First of all, you should know that the WhatsApp 2.17.160 BETA APK (installation file) has 33.64MB, which means that it is only 0.04MB larger than the WhatsApp 2.17.159 BETA APK file.
In other words, the new WhatsApp 2.17.160 BETA doesn’t come with any new features, but instead the developers have worked on fixing some bugs, and they’ve optimized and improved the stability of the application.
We remind you that the application is also expected to get a new feature sometime soon that will allow you to delete unread messages that you’ve sent. However, you will be able to delete them only if they are not older than 5 minutes and if they haven’t been read.
As for the “Video Conference” feature, we still don’t have any official information about when or if it will be released for the WhatsApp application. Some earlier rumors were suggesting that this new feature will allow you to make video calls with two or more users at the same time.
