A new update for WhatsApp has been released for Android, and this one is a beta update. If you are a beta tester and already have the beta version of WhatsApp installed on your device, you can go to the Play Store and update it to the latest version.

The new WhatsApp APK update comes with version number 2.16.97 and build number 451181. The APK file weighs 28.3 MB and can be installed on any Android device.

However, beta builds can be slightly unstable and can crash multiple times. They can also contain bugs or small issues, but that’s how betas are. If you want to download WhatsApp APK v2.16.97, you can go to apkmirror.com and download the latest version of WhatsApp APK.
