Sharing is caring!

A new WhatsApp version for Android smartphones has been released and now it can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. However, before we tell you more about it, you should know that this WhatsApp version is currently in BETA phase, which means that you will encounter issues and bugs while using it.

WhatsApp 2.16.195 brings some new features to the applications such as two-factor authentication and voicemail. The APK file has been increased with 25KB, it has over 500 modified files, most of them related to the application’s functions. However, we have also spotted some new files and directories where the pom.xml and pom.properties.xml have been added (into all 9 new directories).



Unfortunately, we didn’t see any new files or directories which would give us some signs that the Video Calling is being added to the application. However, there are rumors which say that the developers are about to bring this new feature to the WhatsApp application sometime in the near future. It is good to know that the developers haven’t confirmed this feature yet, but let’s not forget that there are other mobile messaging applications that have introduced it a while ago, and the developers of WhatsApp are somehow “forced” to keep up the pace with the competition.
