The best thing that people who enjoy chatting online with WhatsApp can do is to consider enrolling in the beta program. WhatsApp is a powerful app that is used by more than one billion people every single month. This means that the developers who are in charge of WhatsApp can’t take any chances with its software stability or user security and they keep enhancing the app through daily updates. Beta users are always the first ones to get their hands on the latest software tweaks, bug fixes and new features and this is why we are advising all WhatsApp users to check out the beta program.
WhatsApp 2.19.158 Beta Update
As we have previously mentioned, beta users are always the first ones to download the latest updates. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the newly released 2.19.158 beta update for WhatsApp is currently rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels. On the bright side of things, becoming a beta user for WhatsApp is fairly simple and everyone can do it in only a couple of minutes. The only requirement is to own an Android powered device.
The question that all WhatsApp users must be asking right now is what’s new? The answer to that question is a bunch of bug fixes that enhance the overall software stability of WhatsApp. Not just that, but the update also comes with an important security fix for the “CVE-2019-3568” security breach that made it possible for “bad actors” to access the private information of WhatsApp users.
The last thing that we want to cover is that WhatsApp’s new update has also been released in the form of APK. This is a special type of update and the APK acronym stands for “Android Package Kit”. What makes this type of updates special is the fact that they can be manually downloaded and installed.
