When it comes to chatting apps, we think it’s safe to say that WhatsApp is the best one. In case you need any proof of this, then the only thing that you need to look at is how many people are using WhatsApp on a monthly basis. The app has a monthly active user base of more than one billion people from all over the world and this speaks volumes about the performances that WhatsApp offers.
Since so many people are relying on WhatsApp in order to communicate with their friends and family, it should come as no surprise that the developers who are in charge of WhatsApp have made it their primary goal to ensure that the app is always delivering the fastest performances and a premium user experience. The way that the developers are doing this is by releasing a constant stream of updates and in fact, a new one has recently arrived.
New WhatsApp Update
The latest update for WhatsApp sports the 2.19.131 version and it is currently being rolled out via official OTA (over the air) channels, but there’s a catch! The update is not being rolled out to all WhatsApp users and the only ones who are getting it are those who are enrolled in the beta program. In addition, the new update focuses on enhancing WhatsApp’s overall performances through bug fixes.
The Beta Program
On the bright side of things, becoming a beta tester for WhatsApp is fairly simple and everyone can do it. The only thing that interested WhatsApp users need to do is to enroll in the beta program and provide the developers with solid feedback in case a bug or glitch pops up and in return, the developers are giving beta users first access to all the latest features, software tweaks and bug fixes that the chatting app receives.
