Just recently, WhatsApp received a new update that brought a few changes to the app. Over a 100 new emojis got added to the list, and the update brought support for the new app permissions in Android 6.0. Also, some more supported languages were added for the app, and then there’s the addition of Google Drive Backup option.
Well, that update needs to be made stable and smooth, which is why the developers are constantly releasing more updates for the WhatsApp APK. Another minor update has been released today with version number 2.12.479 and build number 450949. The WhatsApp 2.12.479 APK download file weighs 26.94 MB and is compatible with all phones and tablets running on Android 2.1 or later.
As for the changes, do not expect more than general improvements and bug fixes. That said, every update is important as they make the app better and better. Though you should know that this latest WhatsApp APK update isn’t a stable release and is still in the beta phase. While this update should be as stable as the previous one, beta builds are known to have bugs in them that might cause erroneous behaviour in the devices they are installed on.
