App developers who have got their app hosted on the Google Play Store make sure that their app remains updated, and more so if it’s a popular app. WhatsApp has got more than a billion monthly active users, which is why it’s not a surprise that an update for the app is released a every few days. In line with that, the WhatsApp APK for Android has been updated again today and has got a new version number 2.12.493 with build number 450972. The new WhatsApp 2.12.493 APK download file weighs 27.12 MB and supports devices running Android 2.1 or later.
Unlike most of the previous releases, this is not a beta update; it is a stable version. However, this latest WhatsApp APK v2.12.493 release does not come with any new features. The last major update we saw was weeks ago, and it brought new languages and emojis, support for Android 6.0 permissions, Google Drive Backup, and much more. However, that does not mean this new update is worthless, as it still improves the stability and overall performance of the app.
If you are a WhatsApp user, you must not neglect any updates that come out for the app. You can download WhatsApp 2.12.493 APK from the source link given below.
