WhatsApp is the world’s most powerful chatting app and there is no doubt about that. The reason why WhatsApp has reached the point of having more than one billion monthly active users is because the app is always improving. The developers who are in charge of WhatsApp are constantly looking for new ways to improve the user experience and the overall performances that the app has to offer and they do this through a constant stream of updates.
With that being said, no one should be shocked to find out that WhatsApp has received a brand new update. The update is exclusive to beta testers and it changes the app’s version number to 2.19.87. Today we are going to take a more in-depth look at the changes that the new update makes.
WhatsApp 2.19.87 Beta APK
As previously noted, the latest update for WhatsApp is available only for beta testers. Luckily, everyone who uses WhatsApp on an Android powered smartphone can enroll in the beta program and this process doesn’t take more than a couple of minutes.
Group Voice and Video Calls
WhatsApp fans should be happy to know that the new update focuses on improving the app’s group voice and video calls. After installing the new update, WhatsApp users will be able to start group voice and video calls much easier than usual just by tapping on the newly introduced “New Group Call” button which can be found in the calls tab. In addition, voice and video group calls can support up to four individual participants.
Expected OTA Release Date
Considering the fact that this new update is available in the form of beta at the moment, we think it’s safe to say that the app’s developers are going to take at least one more week before releasing it via OTA (over the air) channels.
