Sharing is caring!

WhatsApp is currently one of the most popular mobile messaging applications out there. Now, it has over 1 billion monthly active users who are chatting, making calls and taking advantage of all WhatsApp’s features and convincing others to install this application on their smartphones.

When the WhatsApp application has received the Voice Calling feature, the developers have noticed that a big wave of new users has appeared. This is the reason why there are many rumors which say that the application will receive a Video Calling feature, which will make even more people to install this application on their smartphones.

Unfortunately, the WhatsApp 2.12.351, the latest beta version, doesn’t come with a Video Calling or any other new feature. Instead, this beta version for Android fixed a few bugs and issues that have been found by the developers or reported by the users. At the same time, the developers have improved the application’s stability, so if WhatsApp used to crash often on your smartphone, you should know that this new version might be more stable.

The developers have not confirmed yet if the Video Calling feature will be added to the WhatsApp application, but for now, you can enjoy the latest change, which is the increase of number of participants in a group chat. In the past, the maximum number of people in group chats was 100, and now it’s 256.

WhatsApp 2.12.351: How To Install On Your Android Device

The WhatsApp 2.12.351 is currently in BETA and this means that you will not find it on the official Android store. However, you will be able to manually download and install it on your Android device. First of all, enable the “Unknown Sources” option that allows you to install an APK (installation) file that has been downloaded from a third party source. The “Unknown Sources” option can be found in your device’s Settings-Security or Settings->Applications.

Once you’ve enabled this option, head to and download the WhatsApp 2.12.351 APK file. Finally, use a file manager application to get to the location where you’ve saved the APK file and tap on it to start installing the latest WhatsApp BETA version on your Android device.
