A new update for the WhatsApp Messenger for Android has been released today. The new update is a beta release though, which means you won’t be seeing it on the Google Play Store yet. The new WhatsApp 2.16.32 APK download file comes with build number 451098 and weighs 27.67 MB. Just like always, this version too is compatible with any and all Android tablets and smartphones.
The previous WhatsApp APK updates added some new features to the app, but this new release does not do so. The new version 2.16.32 only brings the under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements for making the app more stable, faster, and smoother. As we have always said before, you must always keep all the apps updated, especially the important ones like WhatsApp. So you should download and install this new WhatsApp 2.16.32 update for Android even if you don’t get any new features.
Just like we mentioned earlier, this is a beta release and hence won’t be available on the Play Store. But you can download it on your Android device by following the steps given below.
How to Download and Install WhatsApp APK on Android Smartphones and Tablets
- In your Android device, go to Settings > Security and find an option named “Unknown sources”. Make sure to check/tick this option to enable it, as it will allow you to install APK files directly on the device.
- Now go to the source link given below this post and download WhatsApp 2.16.32 APK file on your Android smartphone/tablet.
- Once downloaded, open the APK file on your Android device and follow the on-screen instructions to install the latest version of WhatsApp on your device.
If you are experiencing any problems after installing the APK, do not worry as it is normal with beta releases. If you want to go back to the stable version, just uninstall the beta version, go to the Play Store and install WhatsApp from there.
