If you enjoy using WhatsApp in order to communicate with your friends, coworkers and family members, then you should be pleased to find out that a brand-new update for the app has just been released. Before we present everything there is to know about the new WhatsApp update, we need to let everyone know that it is available only for beta testers right now which means that all WhatsApp fans who are interested in accessing the latest software tweaks that the update introduces will need to enroll in the beta program.
WhatsApp New Update
First off, the new update sports the 2.19.139 beta version number. As previously noted, the update is currently rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels to all beta testers. Luckily, becoming a beta tester is quite simple and it doesn’t take longer than a couple of minutes. In addition, the only thing that WhatsApp beta testers need to do in exchange for receiving the privilege of accessing all the latest software tweaks ahead of everyone else is to provide the developers with solid feedback in case a bug pops up.
Since the beta version of WhatsApp is updated on a daily basis, then it should come as no surprise that the developers are not introducing new and exciting features in all updates. Therefore, the latest update for WhatsApp which changes its version number to 2.19.139 focuses on enhancing the performances of the app by introducing bug fixes and software tweaks.
With that said, WhatsApp is going to run smoother than ever after installing the new update. WhatsApp fans will also notice that the boot time of the app has also been reduced and this is thanks to the software optimization tweaks. Lastly, the update comes with a handful of bug fixes that take care of various issues.
