If yesterday we’ve told you about WhatsApp 2.12.130, today we’re going to tell you about a new WhatsApp version that the developers have released for Android OS. The new WhatApp 2.12.134 got released today and it comes with some modified files and new files.
From what we’ve seen, the new WhatsApp 2.12.134 BETA comes with 289 modified files, 6 new files and the installation file has been increased by 75KB. It seems that there are a few changes to the WhatsApp UI, as three new files confirm that, since they are named as follows: “search_background.xml”, “conversations_search_section.xml” and “search_panel.9.png”. These 3 files confirm that there will be some UI changes into the search section. However, there is also a new file named “home.xml” but we’re not sure what it will actually do.
The new WhatsApp 2.12.134 BETA version also comes with some improvements and bug fixes.
