WhatsApp Download 2.12.170 BETA – Ultimate Improved Version Available


WhatsApp 2.12.170 is the second BETA version that got released this week. Unfortunately, this update doesn’t come with any new major changes or new features, but we can clearly say that the company is working hard on improving the application on all its aspects.

The new WhatsApp 2.12.170 BETA version APK file has been increased by 16KB over the previous BETA version and it has 130 modified files that are related to: chats, calls, Google Drive, application settings and more. We’re pretty sure that the developers of WhatsApp will release one or two more WhatsApp versions (or more) before this week ends and hopefully we will see some new features added to the application.

There are a lot of rumors saying that Google Drive is going to be released soon enough. It seems that the developers have finished working on this feature and once it will be added to the application, you will be able to save (and restore) WhatsApp’s chat history backup file from this service offered by Google.
