WhatsApp is the most widely used instant messenger in most of the countries. Facebook even bought the company as it competed with Facebook’s Messenger platform. We have already posted a lot of tricks on Facebook and WhatsApp. For long days, WhatsApp was only providing the beta version for Android. iOS users do have stable version only.
By installing WhatsApp Beta, you can enjoy the next version of WhatsApp before the world does. WhatsApp will publish new features on WhatsApp beta first for testers to test the app and only when the feature is stable enough with a negligible number of bugs, the feature will be pushed to the stable release. If you are bug hunter, you can easily hunt for bugs in beta versions than a stable release. WhatsApp team would be actively responding to bugs reported from WhatsApp beta as the beta version is only for testers.
When there’s a good, there is always a bad. WhatsApp beta for iOS will let you enjoy future versions earlier, however, this will have a lot of bugs where there is a possibility of losing your chat histories. Hence you need to be careful while using WhatsApp beta for iOS. WhatsApp has told that the WhatsApp beta is updated every two days, hence you need to be ready to accept the data costs which require you to update the app.
WhatsApp recommends to backup your chat daily as any new feature on WhatsApp beta might fail to retrieve chat history or fail to upload chats or even fail to prepare the chat backups.
