This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 2.16.325:

WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.


• NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don't have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.

• MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.

• FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they're in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone's Internet connection rather than your cellular plan's voice minutes. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can't access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp).

• GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group chats with your contacts so you can easily stay in touch with your friends or family.

• WHATSAPP WEB: You can also send and receive WhatsApp messages right from your computer's browser.

• NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There's no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.*

• SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone's existing address book.

• ALWAYS LOGGED IN: With WhatsApp, you're always logged in so you don't miss messages. No more confusion about whether you're logged in or logged out.

• QUICKLY CONNECT WITH YOUR CONTACTS: Your address book is used to quickly and easily connect you with your contacts who have WhatsApp so there's no need to add hard-to-remember usernames.

• OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your notifications or turn off your phone, WhatsApp will save your recent messages until the next time you use the app.

• AND MUCH MORE: Share your location, exchange contacts, set custom wallpapers and notification sounds, email chat history, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more!

*Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details.

      • Sallu

        In WhatsApp go to Settings -> Chat settings -> Chat backup

        • tash

          just backed up to my sd card , didn’t the open above window

  • Eduardo Franklen

    Another update, and nothing to resolve the bug with my soft key menu. Discouraged …

    • Sallu

      What bug u had ?

    • Cute Cat

      Report it to them

  • DeHaan

    They should stop using Apple’s emojis and switch to Google’s ones…

    Just my 2 cents.

    • Ad


      • DeHaan

        Why not? It would definitely look nice! And it would suit Android better too. And mainly because the emojis currently being used belong to no one less than our archrival, Apple.

        • Roh_Mish

          They are keeping the apple emoji for familiarity and so that people find it easy while migrating

        • gr47s

          Face it. Apple emojis are better than Google’s. I don’t have a single Apple product. But i love their emojis.

  • javier

    Not save google drive backup, not created folder in drive
    What is solution ?

    • Uncle Bob

      Yeah, I also noticed when I tried to backup. It backs up to somewhere but it’s not to my google drive. When checking there is nothing in my google drive at all. This is very disturbing as where does it upload to? When checking in Google settings app – Connected Apps, it does list Whatsapp and it says “This app can access: Drive App configuration data API”

      • slayer

        Google drive -> settings -> *shows popup* -> manage apps -> Whatsapp (Hidden app data: xxxMB)

  • Pernalonga MG

    I have a problem when someone sends an audio photo or video the phone hangs and restarts .

    • Roh_Mish

      Which device

      • Pernalonga MG

        i’m brazilian. android 4.0.4

        • Roh_Mish

          and device/phone?

  • Stanzilla

    They pulled .45 from the site, was probably too buggy as some of the comments here mention, too. Don’t download!

  • Javed Mansuri

    I have activated this function in my mobile for backup in Drive. But how I can check in my drive, its working or not? can anyone show me path where is it saving backup files?

  • Anup Shetti

    I’ve downloaded the very latest version and this option is not available under the said setting

  • Anhad Naad

    The beta version of whatsapp is cool! The previous one was very dull.

  • Kais

    it will replace the original version ? or not ?
