This release does not have a Play Store Description, so we grabbed one from version 2.18.188:

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.

    No changes

  • Summerer

    Is this the new Play Store version? My Store says updated 8/10/15

    • Zach Chen

      No, the current Play Store version is 2.12.176

      • Summerer

        U know as soon as most of the staged rollouts are started it shows a new release date!?

    • PacMan

      Yeah, I think it’s the Play Store version. The Play Store releases are smaller in size than beta versions.

    • Gabriele Sartoretto

      It is.

  • Andrea Martinengo

    Drive backup!!! Where is

  • baseboy

    Got Drive backup in .228 gone in that Version. Damn!

    • Summerer

      Probably not ready for the masses…

    • Franz

      Same things

    • Pablo G

      Same. I will wait for the next beta to uninstall .229

  • Nihar Patel

    Hey which are the devices that everytime got new releases of the apps firstly because in devices i have and in my family it always got after I saw the apps been uploaded first and then received updates the next day…
    Plz reply… And the uploaders who see this plz tell me…

    • PacMan

      There are no specific devices. Beta releases are on the whatsapp website. This Play Store version is a roll out in stages.

      • Nihar Patel

        Yes but which device u r using?? Or in which device this version got??

        • Andriziih

          It’s random, there’s no device that got new releases first

          • Nihar Patel

            I think It’s not like that and if u know better then which app u have uploaded here??

          • Andriziih

            OK, so keep searching

          • PacMan

            lol take it easy man. I own a S3.

    • Bos

      Is it very important to you? You sounds like you need “the very latest” desperately as your live depends on the new release

      • PacMan

        He’s probably trolling. He posted the same on multiple apk pages.

  • Do i need to install google drive app for drive backup?

    • PacMan

      No. That’s a feature that comes and goes. Probably a server side implementation.

      • I didn’t have that option since installed few updates back.

  • xtr3mio

    Guys its just a beta version you still need to wait for main version :( dont be so judgemental

    • PacMan

      This is the Play Store version.
