At this moment, WhatsApp has over 1.2 billion monthly active users, which makes it one of the most popular mobile messaging applications out there. However, in order to keep the application in the top most used ones, the developers need to continuously work on it in order to fix issues and to bring new features.

Today we will talk about the new WhatsApp 2.17.178 BETA that has just been released for devices running on Android OS. First of all, we have to mention that the installation file of the latest WhatsApp BETA version for Android device has a size of 34.03, which means that it is only 0.01MB larger than the installation file of the WhatsApp 2.17.177 APK.

That being said, we can clearly say that the developers have not brought any new features or options to the application. Instead, the developers have optimized the application and it seems that it is way more stable than before.

The bad news is that the developers have not confirmed yet that they are working on the “Video Conference” feature. According to rumors, the “Video Conference” feature will allow you to make video calls with two or more users at the same time on WhatsApp.

We remind you that the latest feature that was added to the WhatsApp is allowing you to pin up to three chats (groups or single chats) in order to easily have access to them.
