WhatsApp Messenger continues to receive updates and the latest one is the 2.16.273 beta that is now available in the APK format. As always, it is recommended that you download and install these beta updates since they will be able to provide you with the best experience possible, and when we talk about best experience, we mean improved performance and reduced number of crashes. Given below is the changelog and the updates presented in the latest APK file.
-When sharing or forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once
-Chats you frequently contact now appear when forwarding or sharing messages
-While recording videos, slide your finger up or down to zoom in and out
-A new front-facing flash helps you capture selfies in the dark
As you will see, there are actually several changes made to WhatsApp in addressing a minor number of fixes and performance issues. If you continue to run obsolete versions of WhatsApp, then your Android device will be plagued with a variety of problems. To avoid being a victim of those small, but dreaded issues, we highly recommend that you download the latest beta version.
Being a beta update, we weren’t waiting for a video calling update, but who knows, perhaps WhatsApp could have surprised this time. In order to enjoy the latest and greatest features of WhatsApp, we highly recommend that you download the APK file from APKmirror. The total space that will be utilized is 27.16MB, and it’s not much if you want to avoid running into issues with the app later on. If you don’t have sufficient space available, then remove unwanted items from your storage list as soon as possible.
Also keep in mind that this APK file version requires you to be running a minimum OS version of 2.3.4, which is an obsolete update, so the app should download and install on your smartphone without causing you any grief.
