With over 1.2 billion monthly active users, we can clearly say that WhatsApp is one of the most used mobile messaging applications out there. Because WhatsApp is so popular, the developers are continuously working on improving it, as the users are constantly reporting issues and bugs that are affecting the application.

Today we will talk about the latest WhatsApp version that has been released for Android devices. First of all, we need to mention that WhatsApp 2.17.260 is the latest BETA version that is available now for devices running on Android OS.
