WhatsApp Messenger is the top most used app for messaging in today’s world. This app can be used on Android, Windows, and iOS devices. However, the WhatsApp developers seem to be more devoted towards the Android system and release a new update every another day. Likewise, a new update 2.16.70 for WhatsApp on Android is now available in beta phase and can be download as APK from several mirror sites.
The latest APK update for free WhatsApp Messenger supports all Android 2.1+ running smartphones or tablets. The downloadable file weighs approx. 27MB and is available on apkmirror.com. There is no wonder why WhatsApp Inc. has not provided any changelog for its another minor update, but it is quite guessable that the update will not bring any visible changes on the table except a few bug fixes.
If you are a WhatsApp beta tester, the update should have already been reached to your device. But for the users who have not yet registered for the beta programme, the APK download is the only option for now.
