If you are a smartphone user, we do not feel any need to introduce the WhatsApp Messenger. Used by more than a billion users, the WhatsApp is largest mobile messaging application for Android, iOS, and Windows smartphone users. Owned by Facebook, the WhatsApp application keeps getting new updates now and then. One such update has just arrived, WhatsApp 2.16.306, for Android users.

New WhatsApp 2.16.306 Update is now available for download and install as APK file manually on your smartphone. Latest WhatsApp 2.16.306 APK download file weighs around 26MB and supports all smartphones and tablets running at least Android 2.3.4 OS. We do not think there would be any issues with the app compatibility as the least required Android version is now almost obsolete and maximum devices available are either running this version or a later version. However, you will be required some free space for downloading the WhatsApp APK file and then for its installation.

As far as the changes for newest WhatsApp update are concerned, the official changelog for the update is given below.

– Now you can draw or add text and emojis to photos and videos you capture within WhatsApp. You can also pick a brush size or font style by dragging left on the color selector
– In groups, you can now mention specific people by typing the @ symbol
– Group admins can now invite people to join a group by sharing a link. From group info, just tap Add participants > Invite to group via link
– New emoji. And sending a single emoji will now appear larger in chats.

Users around the world are desperately waiting for video calling feature on WhatsApp, however, we don’t think that any such feature will be released this year. It is worth noting that it was already confirmed from the APK source code that WhatsApp Inc. is already testing the video calling feature and should be made available for beta testers during the first half of 2017.

Coming back to the latest WhatsApp 2.16.306 version,  the new update is currently available on Google’s Play Store, so if you want to try it out right away, head to Play Store and update your app. As far as APK Download is concerned, you can download the APK file for free via the source link given below.
