A new update has been released for WhatsApp APK today, and this update brings the app to version number 2.12.557 (build 451058). The new WhatsApp 2.12.557 APK download file is 27.56 MB large and works with Android 2.1 or later devices. Do not expect any new changes in this update and there are no new features. However, it improves the stability and speed of the app and is worth downloading.
Let’s take a recap of all the new features that were added in the recent WhatsApp APK updates. An option for sharing documents via WhatsApp has been added, so you don’t have to share documents via email now. Also, you can share images from apps like Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive. Apart from that, you will find some new emojis and pinch-to-zoom feature when you view videos in WhatsApp.
Talking about the upcoming features, the most awaited feature is the WhatsApp video call option. A lot of messaging apps like Viber and Facebook Messenger already let you make video calls. But considering the fact that WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app for smartphones, it is a surprise that it does not offer video calling. Rumors say that we can expect the feature to be launched in a couple of months, but let’s wait for a more concrete information before guessing anything.
