There’s no better way to start off the day other than to find out that your favorite app has just received a new update. Developers always introduce new and exciting features alongside high priority bug fixes in their latest updates and with that being said, we have some amazing news to share with WhatsApp fans today. The world-famous chatting app has received a new update today (April 10th) and it comes with two major features that will improve WhatsApp’s group voice and audio chats.
WhatsApp 2.19.98 Update
Right from the start, the first thing that we want to mention about WhatsApp’s latest update is that it is available in the form of APK. This means that the update can only be installed on Android powered devices and also that interested WhatsApp fans will need to manually download the update.
If there are any WhatsApp fans who are not that keen on having to manually download and install updates, then they should be pleased to know that WhatsApp’s developers are also going to release the new 2.19.98 update via OTA (over the air) channels. The problem here is that the developers are going to take at least a couple of more days before they do this. Nonetheless, let’s see what are the new features that the update introduces.
As previously mentioned, the new update for WhatsApp is going to improve the group voice and audio chats. The reason why we are saying this is because the new update upgrades the number of participants up to four. To make things even better, the update also makes group voice and audio chats more accessible by placing a “New group call” option that users will be able to access after tapping on the “Groups” button.
