When it comes to popularity and the premium user experience that it offers, there is no other chatting app that can compare with WhatsApp. This app is used by more than one billion people every single month and if this isn’t impressive enough to make you consider giving WhatsApp a try, then you should know that the developers of the chatting app are always improving its performances through regular updates. In fact, a brand-new one has just arrived.
WhatsApp 2.19.98 Update
WhatsApp fans should be happy to know that a new update is coming their way. Although, the update was released today (April 10th) and therefore, it can only be downloaded in the form of APK. For the uninitiated, this acronym stands for “Android Package Kit” and it’s the update format that Android app developers use when they first release an update.
The downside to APK updates is that they need to be manually downloaded and installed by users. Luckily, this isn’t necessary because the new 2.19.98 update is also going to be rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels during the upcoming week. With that said, let’s check out the software improvements that the new update brings.
Improved Performances and Software Stability
First off, we need to mention that this is a high priority update and that all WhatsApp fans who know how to install APK updates should get it as soon as possible. The reason why this is such a high priority update is because it comes with a bunch of software tweaks that optimize the performances of WhatsApp and take them to the next level.
Therefore, the chatting app will run smoother and faster after installing the new update. The best thing about the new 2.19.98 update is the fact that it also introduces a handful of bug fixes. While bug fixes might not seem not that important, WhatsApp fans should know that they improve the software stability of the chatting app, thus reducing the chances for it to randomly crash.
