Meta has a new update in store for WhatsApp users that improves the insanely popular instant-messaging app. You can already grab the update in APK form, as it’s known by version

WhatsApp Messenger comes in the form of just a simple APK file, as there are no bundles around. The variant was built on a universal architecture, and the minimum accepted Android version is Android 4.1.

What’s new

The new update for WhatsApp brings the following features:

  • Users can now use the “delete for everyone” feature
  • Chats can be sorted with the “unread” filter

WhatsApp is going through new updates very often. For instance, we spoke back in August about two new features arriving for the app that allows users to ignore their contacts a lot easier. Those new features consist of the possibility to leave a group without getting others notified, as well as users getting tha chance to hide their “Last Seen” status from a specific contact.

Other features that were recently added to WhatsApp are the increasing of the maximum number of participants in a group to 512, as well as the increase of the file size limit to 2GB.

Feel free to check out WhatsApp’s overview found on the Apple App Store:

WhatsApp from Facebook is a FREE messaging and video calling app. It’s used by over 2B people in more than 180 countries. It’s simple, reliable, and private, so you can easily keep in touch with your friends and family. WhatsApp works across mobile and desktop even on slow connections, with no subscription fees*.

With WhatsApp, you can also become a member of groups that are based on certain topics. If you’re a fan of a specific political party, for instance, you can find such groups on WhatsApp and join them to meet other people interested in the same topic.
