First of all, we remind you that the WhatsApp 2.16.56 is currently in BETA phase, but a few weeks ago, WhatsApp has launched the Android Beta Testing program on the Google Play store, so users can downloading the latest beta versions directly from there, only if they become Testers. However, we will tell you more about this later. Now we’ll give you information about the new WhatsApp BETA update.

The WhatsApp 2.16.56 is a minor update, which means that it doesn’t come with new features or changes. With other words, this new update comes with usual bug fixes and improvements to the application. So, if the previous WhatsApp version used to crash very often, this new update will most likely fix that issue.

WhatsApp 2.16.56 APK (installation) file has been increased with only 3Kb, it has 10 modified files which are related to libraries and a 1 deleted thumbnail file.
