It’s not easy to be the developer of a popular application, because there is a lot of pressure from users. WhatsApp’s creators are updating the application frequently and today we will talk about the latest WhatsApp BETA version that has been released for Android device.
The WhatsApp BETA 2.17.8 doesn’t come with any new feature, but instead it fixes some of the bugs and issues that have been either found by the developers or reported by the users.
When the Video Calling feature was released, it had some issues such as huge data consumption. Those problems have been fixed, but it seems that new reports are suggesting that the developers are now working on a way to implement Video Conference into the WhatsApp application.
Unfortunately, this has not been confirmed yet by the developers of WhatsApp, but if it this feature will be implemented, you will be able to make Video Calls to two or more users at the same time. This will be great if you have common friends and you want to plan a party or something similar.
