When it comes to online chatting, there is no other app that does it better than WhatsApp and we think that everyone is going to agree with us. WhatsApp has revolutionized the way people interact with their friends and family members when it first launched because no one had to send texts or call their friends anymore because they could simply use the features that WhatsApp offers. To make things even better, WhatsApp is also one of the best apps in the world to use in order to share files, especially pictures and videos.
WhatsApp 2.19.178 Beta
Nonetheless, the reason why WhatsApp is making headlines today is because the chatting app has just received a new update. The update sports the 2.19.178 version number and it is currently available for download only to users who are enrolled in the beta program.
If you are interested in accessing the new update but you don’t have a beta account, then you should be pleased to know that creating a beta account for WhatsApp is super simple and that everyone can do it in less than five minutes. However, there is also an alternative way to download the new update.
The APK Variant
The developers of WhatsApp have also released the new update in the form of APK. This is a special type of update format and what makes it stand out is the fact that everyone can manually download and install APK updates on their Android-powered smartphones, not only beta users.
The trick to making a smartphone eligible for this type of updates is to head over to the Settings panel and then to enable the “Unknown Sources” option which will allow users to install updates, apps and mobile games from other places than the Google Play Store.
