There are currently more than one billion WhatsApp users using the app every month. The latest WhatsApp BETA is known as 2.16.248, which doesn’t offer huge changes but is a demonstration of developers attempting to better the app’s functions.



There’s been a 131KB drop in the installation file size for the 2.16.248 version, with more than 310 modified files (180 of them relate to the emojis and icons). There are also two new files in the installation file:

  • xml
  • xml

As it was anticipated, developers want to improve the app’s stability so that it won’t crash as earlier versions had done.

Again, no Video Calling feature has been added, but rumors are going around that it’ll be added sooner rather than later. It’s a feature that users want, and developers can’t continue to ignore if they are to keep their loyal user base. If they don’t offer it in the near future, other mobile messaging apps that do offer it may get WhatsApp users.

How You Can Download and Install WhatsApp 2.16.248 To Your Android Device

Remember, the latest WhatsApp version is in the BETA stage so you must become a beta tester to actually use it. This is done by becoming a tester through the Google Play Store web page. After you’ve done this, go to the official Google Play Store and download the new version and install it.

And, it’s likely you’ll see bugs and other problems. If you do, make developers aware of them so that they’re fixed when the app is released with a stable version.
