WhatsApp is definitely one of the most appreciated mobile messaging applications in the world, being used by billion people who access their accounts every day to keep in touch with their friends. Developers are improving this application very often and they release new updates every few days for Android, and today we’ll talk about WhatsApp 2.16.46, which is in BETA phase.

The new WhatsApp version 2.16.46 contains usual bug fixes and stability improvements, but it also comes with a new feature that allows you to attach and send office documents to your WhatsApp friends. At the same time, we’ve noticed some user interface changes such as the position of the call button, which has been placed on the top right corner. You will also be able to see a small version of the profile/group picture on the right corner, which is placed somewhere near the call button.

Unfortunately, we’re not sure when the developers will bring the Video Calling feature to this application, but we remind you that a screenshot has been posted by WABetaInfo on Twitter with an iPhone testing video calling.
