Sharing is caring!

The developers of WhatsApp released a new version of this application for the Android smartphones. This time it’s about the WhatsApp 2.12.222 version, but unfortunately, it doesn’t come with any new features.

However, according to reports from some users, there is a mini-tutorial on how to use the racial emojis and the saving backup’s time has been changed from 4AM to 3AM. We’re not sure why the developers have decided to change the backup time, but hopefully we will get some information about that soon enough.


The new WhatsApp 2.12.222 APK file has been increased to 23KB and has 195 modified files. With other words, in case you will install this WhatsApp version on your Android device, most likely you won’t feel much difference from the previous WhatsApp BETA version. However, we’re pretty sure that the developers have worked on improving the stability of the application and they fixed some bugs, so it is worth trying out.
