Two days ago, we’ve told you about the WhatsApp version 2.12.278, but it seems that in the meantime, the developers have released a new version of this awesome application. The WhatsApp 2.12.281 is now available for the Android devices and it can be installed right away from the official website.
The new WhatsApp 2.12.281 is a beta version and it can’t be found on the official Android store (Google Play Store), so you’ll have to manually download the APK file and install it. However, we’re going to talk a bit later about how to download and install the WhatsApp 2.12.281 on your Android device.
Currently, the WhatsApp application has over 900 million active users and there are more users who are installing it everyday. A big amount of users have come after the application has received the Voice Calling feature which is available on devices that run on iOS, Android, BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone.
The new WhatsApp 2.12.281 doesn’t come with any new features, but, instead, the developers have improved the application’s stability and fixed some bugs.
WhatsApp 2.12.281: How To Install On Android
Since the WhatsApp version 2.12.281 can’t be downloaded from the Google Play Store, first, you will need to download the APK (the installation file) file from the internet. The safest place from where you can download the WhatsApp 2.12.281 APK file is whatsapp.com/android. After you open that webpage, you will notice a big “Download Now” button and by tapping on it, you will start downloading the WhatsApp 2.12.281 APK on your Android device.
However, since you’ve got the APK file from a third party source, you will need to activate the “Unknown Sources” feature that will allow you to install the WhatsApp 2.12.281 APK on your Android device. This feature can be found in either Settings->Security or Settings->Applications and to be enabled, you will just need to check the box in front of it.
Now that you have the “Unknown Sources” feature enabled, open the file manager application, go to the location where you’ve saved the WhatsApp 2.12.281 APK file and tap on it to start the installation process.
