WhatsApp is one of the most popular mobile messaging applications out there, being used by over 1 billion people and the number is growing everyday. The developers are continuously working on this application and today we will talk about the latest BETA version of it that has just been released.



The latest WhatsApp BETA version is 2.16.263 and it comes with a new feature that allows you to edit pictures with stickers and drawings. In order to access the new feature, you will have to tap on the icon below the camera (such as you would want to take a photo) and tap on any picture that you have on the carousel (or take a new photo).

HINT: Keep in mind that if you go directly to the gallery, you will NOT be able to edit them using the new feature.

Once you access the new feature, you will notice that you have the ability to add stickers, add text or even use freehand drawing on the picture before you send it to a friend on WhatsApp. Unfortunately, this new feature is only available on the latest WhatsApp BETA version, but don’t worry, because we will teach you how to install it on your Android device a bit later in this article.

The WhatsApp 2.16.263 APK (installation) file has been increased by 33KB and has over modified 430 files.
