WhatsApp is the application of the moment, being used daily by over 1 billion loyal fans, on the major platforms. Today we will talk about the latest BETA version of this application that has been released for Android devices.

First of all, you should know that the latest WhatsApp BETA version for Android devices is 2.16.276 and it can now be downloaded and installed directly from the Google Play Store. However, we will teach you how you can do that a little later in this article.

The WhatsApp 2.16.276 APK (installation) file has been increased by 156KB, it has over 1000 modified files, 742 of them being related to emoji and icons. We remind you that good amounts of new emoji have been added yesterday and it seems that the developers had to release this update in order to optimize them. In addition, the developers have modified many files related to the two-factor authentication option, which means that soon enough, we will be able to finally use it.

There is no news about the Video Calling feature, but we assume that sometime in the next weeks we will find out more information about it.

WhatsApp 2.16.276: How To Install On Your Android Device

As we’ve told you above, the WhatsApp version 2.16.276 BETA can be installed directly from the official Android store. However, in order to be able to install it from there, you will have to open this Google Play Store webpage and tap on the “BECOME A TESTER” button. Once you do that, you will need to open the Google Play Store, search for WhatsApp 2.16.276 and install it on your Android device.

When the installation will be complete, you will have to use your mobile phone number to get verified and log into your WhatsApp account.

HINT: Keep in mind that the WhatsApp 2.16.276 is currently in BETA phase, which means that there are high chances that you will find bugs and other issues that will be fixed once the next STABLE version of the application is released.
