Sharing is caring!

WhatsApp is one of the most used mobile applications out there, as there are over 1 billion people who are logging into their accounts daily to chat with their loved ones, or to make voice calls. The application is being updated very frequently and today we will talk about the latest BETA version that has been released for Android smartphones.

The WhatsApp 2.16.204 BETA is currently available for Android and it can be installed directly from the Google Play Store or you can manually download the APK (installation) file from the internet and install it on your device (we will explain you how you can do that a bit later in this article). Unfortunately, the new WhatsApp 2.16.204 doesn’t come with any new features, but instead it fixes some of the issues and bugs that the developers have found in the previous version of the application.

Unfortunately, there is no new information about the Video Calling feature. As we’ve told you in some previous articles, the Video Calling feature has been rumored to be released for WhatsApp on Windows 10 Mobile, Windows Phone, Android and iOS. Actually, a leaked screenshot has showed this feature on a WhatsApp application running on an iOS smartphone. However, the Video Calling feature will most likely be eventually added to this application, because the developers can’t afford to lose users.

WhatsApp 2.16.204: How To Install On Your Android Device

As we’ve told you above, you can install the new WhatsApp 2.16.204 BETA on your Android by either downloading it from the Google Play Store or from the internet. The easiest way is to install it via Google Play Store, but in order to be able to do it, you will firstly have to become a WhatsApp BETA tester on the official Android store by heading to this page and tapping on the “BECOME A TESTER” button. Finally, open the Google Play Store, search for WhatsApp 2.16.204 and install it on your Android device.

However, if you want to install the new WhatsApp 2.16.204 manually, you will need to go to, download the APK file on your Android, head to the location where you have saved it on your handset and tap on it to start the installation process (make sure that you enable the “Unknown Sources” option from your device’s Settings->Security or you will NOT be able to install an APK file that has been downloaded from a third party source).
