If you are one of the hundreds of millions of people who are using WhatsApp on a daily basis, then we have some great news to share with you today. The chatting app has received a new update and all WhatsApp users who are enrolled in the beta program can download it right now. Moreover, this is a lightweight update and it aims to improve the overall performances of WhatsApp by tweaking out the software.
New WhatsApp 2.19.116 Beta
The first thing that we want to note about the latest WhatsApp beta release is that it changes the build number of the chatting app to 2.19.116. As previously noted, this is a lightweight update which means that it doesn’t take up too much storage space. However, we are still advising all WhatsApp beta testers to download the new update via a stable Wi-Fi network and not via mobile data.
In addition, we want to mention that the new update can also be downloaded and installed by WhatsApp users who are not enrolled in the beta program. The trick here is to download the new update in the form of APK (Android Package Kit).
Enhanced Software Stability
Since this is a lightweight update, then it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it doesn’t introduce any new features. However, the update does something much more important than that, it enhances the software stability and performances of WhatsApp by optimizing the software and adding new bug fixes.
Top Priority Bug Fixes
We know that bug fixes might not be as exciting as new features, but this doesn’t take anything away from their importance. The bug fixes which are being introduced by this new 2.19.116 beta update are high priority because they take care of various issues which sometimes cause WhatsApp to lag.
