WhatsApp: how to download the APK and install the latest update on Android

By  Mia Carla 2019-06-05 701 0

WhatsApp is one of the most widely used instant messaging applications in the world. Used by more than a billion people every day, it was bought by Facebook in 2014 and is now part of Facebook Messenger. However, the operation of the two applications is not the same, nor are their functionalities.

Regular updates are available on WhatsApp, regularly adding their dose of new features. However, their deployment is not necessarily immediate for everyone and it can take several weeks or even months before they can be used. However, those in a hurry can go through back roads to go faster.

WhatsApp is available on the Google Play Store (and iOS App Store), which allows for easy download, installation and update process. This is how the majority of service users use WhatsApp.

Application updates should be automatic, but it is possible that an update is pending. To check it, open the Google Play Store side panel, click on "My Games and Applications" and you will see immediately if an update is available.

Deployment on the Google Play Store is sometimes a little slower, so it is always possible to download the APK from the application elsewhere. As usual, we will of course recommend APKMirror, a trusted site, or the official WhatsApp site. Remember that an APK found on an unscrupulous source can be dangerous to your device and your personal data.

Here is the latest version available to date:

Different versions may be available depending on the processor of your device:

Don't worry, if you have the wrong file, the application will simply not want to install. Trying to install the wrong APK will not cause any additional problems.

To install an APK file, you must first allow unknown sources, then launch the APK file from a file explorer. For more details on this manipulation, please refer to our complete tutorial.

The last major update of WhatsApp brought the calls to several. It is now possible to hold an audio or video conversation with up to 4 people. Note that WhatsApp and Google have announced that discussion backups are stored free and unlimited on GDrive.

For those who want to test the new features even earlier, WhatsApp offers a beta program. This allows you to receive new features before other users, at the risk of encountering some additional bugs.

It is possible to subscribe to the beta program directly from the Google Play Store. Once again, those in a hurry can find the latest version on APKMirror:

This beta version includes among other things a reverse image search via Google Images to fight against fake news, even if the feature is not yet fully deployed and must be enabled on the server side.
