The first WhatsApp update for Android for this week is now available on the Google Play Store. We have some good news for you, as this update comes with new chains that are related to the rumored video calling feature.

With other words, it is just a matter of days until the developers will activate the Video Calling feature, which you will be able to use without any problems. We remind you that this feature was spotted a few days ago on a WhatsApp version on iPhone and it was expected to be soon released for Android devices.



The new WhatsApp 2.16.73 APK (installation) file was increased with 218KB, it has over 300 modified files, 2 new files (“ic_chat_icon_change_arrow.png” and “conversation_row_photo_change.xml” and 1 deleted thumbnails file.

WhatsApp 2.16.73: How To Install On Your Android Device

The WhatsApp 2.16.73 is the latest BETA version for Android devices, but since a few weeks ago, users have been given the possibility to download and install the application directly from the Google Play Store. However, first of all, you will need to become a beta tester by heading to this page.

You can also use the old “fashion” way, by following these steps:

  • Download the WhatsApp 2.16.73 APK file from whatsapp.com/android
  • Enable the “Unknown Sources” option from your device’s Settings->Applications or Settings->Security;
  • Use a file manager application to go to the location where you have saved the WhatsApp 2.16.73 APK file;
  • Tap on the APK file to start installing the latest WhatsApp BETA version on your Android device.
