If you enjoy using WhatsApp in order to keep in touch with your friends and family members, then you should be pleased to know that the chatting app has just received a new update. The update has arrived today, but not everyone is going to receive it. The reason why we are saying this is because the new update for WhatsApp is not a regular OTA (over the air) release and instead, it’s an APK update that targets beta testers.
WhatsApp users who aren’t familiar with APK updates and still want to get their hands on the new features and software tweaks that the latest update introduces shouldn’t worry because we are going to explain everything that they need to do step by step.
WhatsApp 2.19.73 Beta APK
The first thing that interested WhatsApp users need to do in order to download the new update which arrived today is to enroll in the app’s beta program. This is super simple and everyone can do it in a couple of minutes. The only thing that beta testers need to do in exchange for receiving access to new features before everyone else is to provide the developers with solid feedback.
After enrolling the beta program, the next step that WhatsApp users need to make is to find a reliable APK website because the update is available only in the form of APK. Also worth noting is that this type of updates can only be installed on Android powered smartphones that have the “Unknown Sources” option enabled.
“It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select “New group call” when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants,” said the developers of WhatsApp in the patch notes.
