Sharing is caring!

WhatsApp is one of the most used mobile applications out there, being loved by over 1 million people who log into their accounts every day, to chat with their loved ones. However, the application is updated frequently, and the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android is 2.16.141. Below, we will talk about it.

The new WhatsApp version comes with some internal changes, but there aren’t many significant improvements. First of all, you should know that the WhatsApp 2.16.141 APK (installation) file of the application has been decreased by 48KB and has 280 modified files, including the latest additions that show messages pending in scroll button.

At the same time, 5 files have been removed, such as: “conversation_row_video_left.xml”, “conversation_row_video_right.xml”, “conversation_row_location_right_large.xml”, “conversation_row_image_left.xml” and “conversation_row_image_right.xml”. A new file has been added (“activity_deprecated_device.xml”), which will notify you that your device is quite old and it will not be supported in the near future.

Unfortunately, there is no news regarding the Video Calling feature, which is rumored to be released sometime in the near future on WhatsApp for iOS, Android, Windows Phone OS and Windows 10 Mobile OS.

WhatsApp 2.16.141: How To Install On Your Android Device

The WhatsApp 2.16.141 BETA can be downloaded and installed directly from the Google Play Store. However, you will not be able to do this if you don’t become a WhatsApp BETA tester. It’s quite easy to become a WhatsApp BETA tester on the Google Play Store, as you will just need to open this page and tap on the “BECOME A TESTER” button. Once you’ve become a WhatsApp BETA tester, open the Google Play Store, search for WhatsApp 2.16.141 and install it on your Android device.

We remind you that the WhatsApp 2.16.141 is currently in BETA phase and it will most likely contain some annoying bugs and errors that will be fixed once the next STABLE version of the application will be released. In other words, if you want a bug-free WhatsApp application, just install the latest WhatsApp STABLE version.
