We’ve told you yesterday about the new WhatsApp BETA version which brought Davlik, the virtual machine whose function is to run application written in Java. Well, it seems that the developers have decided to remove it, as the new WhatsApp 2.16.132 doesn’t have it anymore.
The developers had to do this because millions of users have real issues when trying to install the WhatsApp application with Davlik support. However, since the WhatsApp 2.16.132 removes the Davlik feature, the application can now be installed without any problems. The new WhatsApp 2.16.132 also fixes other small bugs and improves the application, which means that it will not crash as often as before.
The WhatsApp 2.16.132 APK (installation) file has been increased by 48KB, it has over modified 230 files and, of course, the “libwa_dalvik.so” file was removed, as the developers have failed the “experiment”.
However, what concerns us is that there is no news regarding the “Video Calling” feature that is expected to be released for this application. We are not sure why the developers are delaying to release this new feature, but we’re hope that they will come with some good news about it in the near future. But one thing is for sure: the developers will need to bring the “Video Calling” feature to the WhatsApp application or they will lose a big amount of users who will prefer to install Viber, Skype or any other application that already supports this feature.
