The developers of WhatsApp are continuously working on their application and they’ve just released the version 2.12.506, which can be downloaded from the Google Play. We also remind you that you can now send PDF files to other friends on WhatsApp and there will be more supported document types in the near future.
The new WhatsApp 2.12.506 comes with some user interface modifications to the Settings screen, which until now didn’t receive any big chances. First of all, you will notice the new green icons along with spaced out elements. One of the most noticeable changes is the profile settings, which is now located at the top and it is not a simple setting in the list. However, this is great especially for new users, which were having a big problem on finding and changing their profile name, status, or photo.
The new WhatsApp 2.12.506 also brings “Data Usage” on the Settings menu and the “Help” option that was found in this menu has now been named as “About and help”. At the same the time the “About and help” option was pushed to the bottom of the list.
When you will start looking on the sub-level settings, you will also see a few changes. First of all, the Profile page has been revamped and the picture is now round instead of square. The payment info has been removed from the Settings, but that was expected since the WhatsApp application is totally free and you don’t need to pay the annual fee anymore.
All the data-related settings have been moved to the “Data Usage” Section. The Call Settings and Media Auto-download have also been moved from Chats to the new “Data Usage” menu. If you’re an old WhatsApp user, it will take you a few minutes to get familiarized with the new settings organization, but it surely makes more sense now, than the previous one.
We remind you that the WhatsApp 2.12.506 is currently in BETA phase and in order to use it, you will need to be part of the Google Play Store Beta program, or to manually download and install the APK file from the whatsapp.com/android.
