WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging applications on Android smartphones. It comes with many features and more than 900 million people are using it daily to keep in touch with their friends and families. Most of the WhatsApp users own an Android device and this is the main reason why the developers are updating this version more frequently.

The latest BETA version of WhatsApp is now 2.12.302 and it can be downloaded and installed on your Android device. Unfortunately, the new WhatsApp version doesn’t come with new features, but it benefit from some bug fixes and improvements that will make the application run smoother than before.

The new WhatsApp 2.12.302 BETA APK file has been decreased by only 5KB over the previous version and it comes with 9 modified files that are related to manifestos and libraries. A few days ago we’ve told you about the latest WhatsApp STABLE version that the developers have released, which, unfortunately, doesn’t feature the Google Drive option yet.

It seems that this latest WhatsApp BETA version still doesn’t feature Google Drive feature either, which means that it might take a while until it will be finally released. It is good to know that we will most likely see this feature first being added to a BETA version and after a few weeks of testing it will be released for the STABLE version of the application.

HINT: You can download the latest STABLE version of WhatsApp for Android directly from the Google Play Store.
