A new WhatsApp BETA version has been released for devices running on Android OS. We have to mention that since this application is very popular (having over 1.2 billion monthly active users), it means that the developers have to continuously work on it, because the users find all the time new issues that need to be fixed.
The latest WhatsApp BETA version that has been released for Android devices is 2.17.156 and it can already be downloaded and installed on your handset. The new WhatsApp 2.17.156 BETA APK (installation) file has a size of 33.56MB, meaning that it is only 0.03MB larger than the previous installation file of the application.
This means that the developers have not added any new features or options to the application, but instead they have just worked on fixing some of the issues and bugs that they’ve found on the application.
We remind you that some recent rumors were suggesting that the developers will release a new feature to the application that will allow you to delete messages that you’ve sent to someone. However, you will be able to delete those messages ONLY if the person you’ve sent them to has not read them and a specific period time has not passed.
As for the “Video Conference” feature, we still not have any official information about it, so there are high chances that those previous rumors were just some hoaxes.
