WhatsApp is one of the most used mobile messaging applications out there and this is confirmed by over 1 billion monthly active people. Today we will talk about the latest WhatsApp BETA version that has been released for Android devices and the features that come with it.



The WhatsApp 2.16.166 has just been released for Android devices and it seems that follows the footsteps from the previous updates, without any major changes or functions being added. When it comes to the WhatsApp 2.16.166 APK (installation) file, you should k now that it has been increased by only 23KB, it has 50 modified files, most of them being related to the chat conversations. In addition, a new file has been added and it is named “conversation_header.xml” and because of it, we might see soon some changes in the interface of the chats.

Unfortunately, there is no news regarding the rumored Video Calling feature, but we are pretty sure that the developers will come with some information about it in the upcoming weeks. The developers will need to bring this feature to this application or else there are high chances that some users will decide to ditch WhatsApp in favor of any other mobile messaging application that already has Video Calling  integrated.
