There are lots of powerful apps that people can download and install on their smartphones in order to make their lives easier and WhatsApp is one of them. This is the world’s most popular chatting app and it excels at making it easier for users to communicate with their friends and family members. Nonetheless, the reason why WhatsApp is making headlines today is because the chatting app has just been updated.
WhatsApp 2.19.228 Beta Update
The latest update for WhatsApp sports the 2.19.228 beta version number. As we can tell from the update’s beta number, the only WhatsApp users who can download it right now are those who are enrolled in the beta program. Luckily, everyone who uses an Android powered smartphone can create a beta account for WhatsApp in less than five minutes.
The new update is a maintenance release and this means that instead of introducing a handful of new features, the update focuses on improving the overall performances of WhatsApp and it does that by introducing bug fixes and ‘under the hood’ software tweaks. Therefore, we are advising all WhatsApp beta users to download the new update ASAP.
