WhatsApp is surely the messaging application of the moment for the mobile devices. The developers of WhatsApp are continuously working on improving this awesome application. The latest BETA version of WhatsApp for Android is 2.12.306 and it was released yesterday (October 9, 2015).

Unfortunately, the new WhatsApp BETA version doesn’t come with new features. With other words, the new BETA version comes with bug fixes and stability improvements. It seems that the “Google Drive” feature is still not enabled and we’re not sure yet when the developers will finally release this awesome option that will allow you to save the chat history on the cloud.

The WhatsApp application has over 900 million monthly active users and there are more users registering daily. One of the latest features that the developers have added to it is the Voice Calling one, which allows you to make calls to anyone that’s using this application (keep in mind that the Voice Calling feature is only available for Android, Windows Phone, iOS and BlackBerry 10). We also remind that the application is using the internet connection to send and receive data, which means that you will not need to pay any extra fees for making calls to someone that lives in another country.
