WhatsApp 2.12.114 APK Free Download – Improved Voice Calls and Performance for Android
With a user base of over 800 million people from all over the world, there is no shadow of doubt that WhatsApp is the leading app in the world of instant messaging and VoIP.
This is by far a margin that only Facebook, which is the owner of WhatsApp, has ever managed. Facebook is followed by over 1.4 billion people across the world. Despite the fact that the company has its own messaging and voice calling app in the shape of Facebook Messenger, the acquisition of WhatsApp is an indicator that this app is truly huge in this market. This can be underlined by the huge sum that Facebook was willing to part with just to acquire the services of this application.
WhatsApp introduced voice calling services early this year. Since then, the app keeps increasing its numbers when it comes to active monthly users. It is no doubt that the dream of Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg’s to have more than a billion WhatsApp users in just a few years will come early, maybe before the end of this summer.
Issues with WhatsApp voice calls solved
WhatsApp has tremendously been growing its user base. However, many of those already using the voice calling feature have been complaining that WhatsApp voice calls have lots of lags, especially in areas with poor internet connection or rather, 2G connection. Other users noted some interruptions during calls, while almost all of them have been mourning about their data packs’ usage during WhatsApp voice calls.
These are the major issues that WhatsApp developers have been sweating over day and night. Recently, we have seen cases of more than one WhatsApp APK file being rolled out in a day, an indicator that these developers are really working hard on perfecting this voice calling feature for the WhatsApp users. Despite these many efforts, the WhatsApp voice calling feature has yet to be released on the Windows Phone devices, which is something the users of this platform are not happy about. But, according to a trusted source, users of this Microsoft-based mobile platform will probably be getting this feature this summer.
Installing WhatsApp 2.12.114 APK on Android
The latest WhatsApp 2.12.114 APK is a beta version. All beta versions of any apps are not uploaded in the Google Play Store. It is only after being verified by the developers of the app and the Google engineers that the app is certified to be fit for uploading in the Play Store. This means that the latest version of this messenger is not available in the Play Store. This doesn’t however mean that you cannot get this application installed on your Android device.
All you need is to visit the official WhatsApp website to get the latest APK file for v2.12.114 beta or get it from apkmirror.com. The app is free to download and install, but only for the first one year. You must start paying a fee of $0.99 per year after using it for free for the first year.
Before installing this APK file, you must follow the path “Settings>Security>Unknown sources” and check the last option so as to enable installation of this file. After installing, make sure you revert to old security settings to prevent the installation of apps from malicious developers.
WhatsApp 2.12.114 APK will still make use of the same number as the stable version; thus, you can still restore messages from the old app. This will however be possible only if you create a backup file before removing the old WhatsApp from your device (you must remove/uninstall installed WhatsApp for the new APK file to install successfully).
