WhatsApp 2.12.382 Download Available For Android – Newest Bug Fixes
WhatsApp is an application which evolves continuously, and we’ve seen many new updates in the past month, bringing all kinds of new features and performance improvements. WhatsApp 2.12.382 has been released a few days ago, but it doesn’t come with anything new and you can download it from the official website.
Over 900 million people are using WhatsApp every day and they’re sending messages all over the world, for free. Moreover, the application has a feature which allows them to make free voice calls to other WhatsApp users who have a smartphone running on a platform which supports this feature. Lately, new features have been added, such as starred messages, which allows the users to find later an important message, after being “starred”. To do this, the users tap and hold on the message until they see the “star” option and tap on it. To browse starred messages, they must go to Chats tab > Menu > Starred Messages.
The developers have included rich previews, so when someone sends a link, the user has an idea what the page contains without opening it. However, there’s the option to not include rich previews, so the link is simple and doesn’t occupy too much space on the screen. Also, the third important feature that has been added lately is support for Android direct share, which allows the users to quickly choose a specific chat and share content from other applications, but it works only with Android 6.0+.
Since this is a beta version and doesn’t come with new features, you’ll see only minor improvements and bug fixes, resulting that the creators are preparing to release another stable version on the Google Play Store. And to install an APK file from a third party source is possible only if the Unknown Sources option is enabled. So, first you need to go to your phone’s Settings->Security or Settings->Applications and check the box in front of the Unknown Sources, then go to whatsapp.com/android and download WhatsApp 2.12.382. The installation file has a size of 24.3MB.
