Anyone who has ever used WhatsApp in order to communicate with their friends or family members knows that the app offers a plethora of cool features. These features have been carefully designed to make it easier for people to express themselves through texts and to make things even better, WhatsApp benefits from a constant stream of APK updates that introduce newer and better features. In fact, a brand-new APK update that targets beta testers has arrived today.
WhatsApp 2.19.80 Beta
The latest update available for WhatsApp is available in the form of APK and as previously mentioned, it can only be installed by beta testers. Luckily, enrolling the app’s beta program is not that complicated and everyone who uses an Android powered smartphone can do it. With that said, let’s check out which are the new features which are being introduced by the new update.
First off, the new 2.19.80 update comes with a bunch of bug fixes that make sure WhatsApp doesn’t randomly crash. Even though most users don’t care about bug fixes and the only thing that matters to them are new features, we have to give praise to WhatsApp’s developers for always introducing bug fixes in every new update because they are what keep the app’s performances at a peak-performance level. Now, let’s check out what the patch notes for the update have to say:
- You can once again set a text-only update in your profile and it’s called About. Tap Settings and then your profile name to edit it. Thanks for the feedback!
- Search for the perfect animated GIF right from within WhatsApp. Tap the emoji button in a chat and then tap GIF at the bottom of the emoji panel to get started.
Nonetheless, the new 2.19.80 APK for the beta version of WhatsApp is a high priority update and we advise all beta testers to download it ASAP.
