The beta version of WhatsApp Messenger
WhatsApp, the most downloaded and used instant messaging application in the world, has a beta version with improvements and changes that the developers plan to make available in the future stable version. For the most impatient, this is the best way to discover the chat app's new features; that said, the new functions in this beta are not always present in the stable version.

The functions and features you will find in WhatsApp Beta are mostly the same of the stable version, which you already know:
- Chat with contacts.
- Group chats.
- Sending files and documents.
- Status updates similar to Instagram Stories.
- VoIP calls.
- Sending voice notes.
- Sharing location.
- Video calls.

But hey, you'll always have the stable version, which normally works flawlessly.
