The WhatsApp 2.12.286 version is currently available for the Android smartphones. It doesn’t come with new features, but it seems that the developers have made a few changes to the APK file.

We’ve seen a few files changed, but the APK file was only slightly decreased, which means that the developers are continuously working on improving the stability and they’ve fixed the bugs they’ve found in the previous version of the application.
