Facebook is one of the most popular social networks of all time.
However, you may be wondering why we are talking about Facebook in an article about WhatsApp. WhatsApp is part of Facebook, as the company acquired the instant messaging service some time ago.
WhatsApp is used by over two billion people in over 180 countries.
The app is easy to use, reliable, and it keeps your data private, which is precisely what most people want.
The app receives occasional updates, so developers ensure that the service is up and running correctly at all times.
The app has just reached version 126.96.36.199 beta. The new version will soon go out of the beta phase (if it hasn’t already at the time when you read the article), and a worldwide release will follow.
With each new update, the app becomes more reliable. Each update is unique in the sense that there is no unimportant update. There are always numerous tweaks to do and parameters to adjust.
We strongly suggest that you update WhatsApp as soon as you can for numerous reasons.
First of all, the company heavily focuses on data privacy, and many of its updates contain safety enhancements, which is why you wouldn’t want to miss out on them.
Additionally, keeping the app un-updated for too long will eventually lead to obsolescence, as it will simply refuse to work, prompting you to update it.
It is usual for all apps to do that, it isn’t something particular to WhatsApp.
If you want to be among the first to have access to the newest WhatsApp updates, you have to join the company’s beta program. There are some downsides to that, as you can sometimes experience problems that are typically associated with beta versions of apps.
