A new WhatsApp BETA version has been released for smartphones that run on Android OS. Even if the new WhatsApp 2.17.97 BETA version doesn’t come with any new features or options, you should install it on your device because it brings some bug fixes and improvements to the application’s stability.

The WhatsApp 2.17.97 BETA APK (installation) file has a size of 33.05MB and it can be downloaded and installed directly from the Google Play Store, but we will tell you how you can do this a bit later in this article.

There are reports which are suggesting that the developers are preparing a new important feature. Many WhatsApp fans are hoping that the rumored “Video Conference” feature will be added to the application, but we think that it will take some time for the developers to release it.

We remind you that the “Video Conference” feature will reportedly allow you to make video calls with two or more people at the same time. This would be without any doubts one of the most important features that the WhatsApp application will have and it will attract many new users.

Unfortunately, the developers of this popular mobile messaging application have not confirmed the rumored feature yet. This means that we should take all these rumors regarding the “Video Conference” feature with a bit of salt.
