WhatsApp is evolving very fast and this is confirmed by every new version of this application that’s released almost daily. Today we will talk about the WhatsApp version 2.16.48 BETA that has been released, which can be downloaded and installed on your Android device.

However, before we tell you how to install this new WhatsApp version on your Android device, we’re going to talk about the changes that come with it. After installing the application, you will notice that it doesn’t come with any visual changes, but when looking at the APK (installation) file, we can say that the developers are preparing to bring some changes to the application. The new WhatsApp 2.16.48 APK file has been increased by 50KB, it has over 340 modified files and 59 of them are related to conversations. At the same time, there is a new file added called “call_spam.xml”, which will most likely block spam calls that the users receive.



There is no news regarding the rumored Video Calling feature, which is expected to be added to the WhatsApp application sometime soon. It is good to know that the developers haven’t confirmed that they are working on a Video Calling feature for WhatsApp, so we suggest you to be skeptical and to take rumors with a bit of salt.
