WhatsApp’s developers have announced that BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, S60 and older versions of Windows Phone and Android will no longer receive updates, and this news made sad a lot of users. Fortunately for the users who run newer or the latest version of Android on their devices, there are new beta updates released every few days and the last APK is 2.12.486.

Now that WhatsApp has surpassed the number of 1 billion active users and the annual fee of $0.99 has been removed, more people will be tempted to try out this application, in order to chat with their friends or make free voice calls to them. The application offers a lot of useful features and every now and then there are added new features.

A week ago, the application has received an update with support for more languages, support for app permissions in Android 6.0 and months ago was introduced the Google Drive Backup. It seems that WhatsApp is becoming richer in features and the developers are not stopping here. The last beta version that was released a few days ago is 2.12.486 and it carries the build number 450960.

The APK file weighs 22.99 MB (decreased in 4042 KB) and it contains small improvements to the stability of the application and regular bug fixes. Also, the option to view Starred Messages in contact’s profiles has been removed, there are 280 modified files, including the “view_share_contacts.xml” function. 12 files have been eliminated, which were related to libraries. And, it seems that the developers are preparing to eliminate support for Android 2.1 and Android 2.2.

In order to install WhatsApp 2.12.365 APK on your device, you will first need to uninstall the previous version of the application, then to enable the Unknown Sources option by going to Settings > Security. Now, download the APK from the internet and tap on it to start the installation process.
