WhatsApp developers not only work on bringing new features but also on fixing all bugs in the preceding versions.

In fact, the app may end up receiving at least two APK versions in a week. The app developers have currently released two updates;WhatsApp 2.12.342 for Android and WhatsApp 2.13.16 for Nokia Asha or any other smartphone running on Symbian S40 like Nokia C3.

The version for Nokia Asha does not come with any added feature. There are only bug fixes and performance enhancements. The developers have increased the new WhatsApp 2.13.16 JAR file with only 2KB and an added 600 revised files. The update can be downloaded and installed on the specified devices.

Minor functionality difficulties are expected as the version is only in its preliminary stages. Beta versions are necessary for the company before releasing the stable version. The users’ feedbacks on where to repair and improve the app are important and make part of the tests done with beta versions.
