WhatsApp 2.17.262 BETA Update Download Available With Bug Fixes


With over 1.2 billion monthly active users, WhatsApp is currently one of the most used mobile messaging applications out there. Today we will talk about the latest WhatsApp BETA version that has just been released for Android devices.

First of all, we need to mention that the latest WhatsApp BETA version is 2.17.262 and it can be downloaded and installed on your device from Google Play Store. However, we will tell you more about the installation process a bit later.

The new WhatsApp 2.17.262 BETA has an installation file size of 36.28MB, which is 0.01MB smaller than the installation file size of the previous WhatsApp BETA application. In other words, the developers have not added any new features or options to the WhatsApp 2.17.262 BETA, but instead they’ve improved the stability of the application and fixed some bugs.

We have to remind you that in some previous articles we’ve talked about a rumored “Video Conference” feature, which will allow you to make video calls with two or more users from WhatsApp at the same time. Unfortunately, the developers have not confirmed that they are working on such a feature or if they will ever bring it to the application.

One of the latest features that the WhatsApp application has received is allowing you to “delete” the message(s) that you’ve sent to someone. However, this won’t work in case the receiver has already read the message or if 5 minutes have passed since you’ve sent it.
