The latest WhatsApp BETA version 2.16.308 has just been released for Android devices. Unfortunately, the new version doesn’t come with any big chances, but there are some minor ones which are worth to be mentioned.

First of all, when you will receive a video in a WhatsApp chat, a small icon (play) will now appear. The new icon has been introduced in this new version of the application along with many others. Unfortunately, there are no major changes made to the application, so if you’ve been expecting the “Video Calling” feature, you’re not in luck. As expected, some bugs have been fixed and the application’s stability has been improved.



The WhatsApp 2.16.308 APK (installation) file has been increased by 510KB and it has over 1120 modified files. It is good to know that most of them are some emoji that have been optimized. In addition, two new icons have been added (circle_shade_big.9.png and ic_video_play_conv.png) along with a conversation_row_legacy_video_left.xml file.
