WhatsApp has been the best free instant messaging app for Android since it has existed. Though many other apps like Viber, LINE, WeChat, etc. try to give a tough fight to WhatsApp, it just does not leave the ruling position that it has in the Play Store. WhatsApp is available as a free download and does not come with any other in-app purchases, which is what makes it all the more appealing. You get the first year free and need to pay the nominal annual fee after that, while WhatsApp has waived the fee in few countries like India.
One thing that must be appreciated about WhatsApp is that it has been updated regularly and new features have been introduced quite often. The last major update brought great design improvements and new emojis. But between larger releases, WhatsApp developers are always pushing out little updates to fix any annoying bugs or other issues that might be plaguing WhatsApp. One such update has been released today.
The new update is WhatsApp 2.12.427 (450879). Going by the version number, it is clear that it’s not a major update, and no changelogs have been provided. This suggests that we should expect very little visual changes, but there surely must be under-the-hood improvements. The update weighs 26.79 MB in total and runs on Android 2.1 and above. As the new WhatsApp update needs the lowest running Android version, all type of Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG, Huawei, and other brand smartphones running on Android OS will support the APK. In case you are a daily WhatsApp user, this update might resolve a few bugs.
The new update is available on Play Store now. If you want to download APK file, the same can be downloaded from APKpure.com.
