WhatsApp is an extremely popular mobile messaging apps, with more than one billion active users to date. Of course, there’s a new BETA version out for the WhatsApp app on Android devices.



WhatsApp 2.16.246 BETA has no major changes to it, but there are several features developers are hard at work on. Some have been implemented but not activated. This latest BETA version includes new files and icons. Here’s what you could see and can expect:

  • APK Installation file has had a 70KB increase with more than 580 files changed in some way (mainly relates to application functions)
  • Seven new icons
  • Two new files were also added

There is no information circulating about the Video Calling feature people would really like to have.

How To Install WhatsApp 2.16.246 On Your Android Device

This version is in the BETA phase, and if you’d like to install it, you’ll need to go through the official Android store and enroll in the BETA testing program WhatsApp offers. Go to the Google Play Store to sign up to “Become a Tester” and that’s it. From there, you can look for the latest app in the store and download/install onto the device.

Since WhatsApp 2.16.246 is still in the BETA stage, it will have bugs and errors and is likely to crash from time to time. If you want to have a stable version, download the latest released bug-free version of WhatsApp.
