The WhatsApp 2.16.25 beta update for Android has just been released and it is finally allowing you to send Word, PowerPoint and Word files. We remind you that the WhatsApp users have been able to send PDF files for a few days already.
It is good to know that you are able to send these mentioned file types on WhatsApp only if you have the version 2.16.25 installed on your mobile device. However, users who have a previous version of WhatsApp are able to receive the mentioned file types via this application, but they will not be able to send them. The WhatsApp version 2.16.25 for Android has also brought back the preview profile pictures.
There are also rumors which say that the developers of this popular application will bring the Video Calling feature. However, we don’t have any official confirmation about this feature, so we should take all rumors with a bit of salt.

The WhatsApp 2.16.25 is currently in BETA phase, which means that in order to install it on your Android device, you will either need to join the WhatsApp BETA TESTING PROGRAM on the Google Play Store or to download it from the internet and manually install it.
You can become a WhatsApp BETA tester by going to this page and tapping on the “Become A Tester” button. Once you do this, you will be able to install the latest WhatsApp BETA version directly from the Google Play Store.
