It’s almost the middle of January and this year, WhatsApp’s developers have released nine beta versions, but which don’t contain any features, only fixes for most of the found bugs. More rumors keep appearing about the video calling feature, but there’s no trace of it yet in the new versions, so we’ll just wait and see when this feature will arrive. Until then, here are the changes that the WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.405 brought.
WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.405 was released a few hours ago, but it’s not very different from version .402, which came with the following bug fixes and other changes:
– the Doc. Send function has been improved, but this change wasn’t released yet;
– also, the improvements to Coding Messages are not available yet;
– the users will benefit from better Android 6.0.x Marshmallow support;
– a new Search in Web icon has been added;
– the developers have improved and corrected language;
– the Camera Crash bug and “WhatsApp Web” bug have been fixed;
– the emojis from the notification light will be displayed again, as this bug appeared in Android 6.0+, in version v2.12.401).
There are many other improvements that have been added to this update, which is 25.22 MB in size, but the developers haven’t provided a changelog, so we don’t know exactly what it contains. WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.405 can be downloaded from the official website, but in order to install it on your Android device, first you must enable the Unknown Sources option which is found in your device’s Settings -> Security, where you will see a box in front of it. After checking it, you will be able to download and install any application from third party sources (other websites than the Google Play Store).
WhatsApp has surpassed 1 billion active users, who are accessing their account every day to keep in touch with their contacts.
