If you want to know how to update WhatsApp to the latest version and always enjoy the new features, today we are going to tell you how you can do it on both Android and iOS.

WHATSAPP Tips and tricks to HIDE YOURSELF TO THE MAXIMUM and keep your PRIVACY
How to update WhatsApp to the latest stable version
In the case of Android, most users access the Play Store to download and update their applications. If this is your case, you will simply have to go to Play Store> My apps and games and check for available updates.
If you have an iPhoneYou simply have to go to the App Store and click on the updates button to check if there is an update available. Unfortunately, iOS does not have an official beta channel.
If you are an Android user, you may be interested in downloading the beta version of the application, since this is where the news that will later reach the final version is included. Below we specify the process for each operating system.
How to install the beta version of WhatsApp on Android
If you like to be up to date and try new features, it may be a good idea to sign up for the WhatsApp beta program. In the case of Android, we will have to go to this link, click on “become a tester” and update WhatsApp from the Play Store.
We also have the option of directly download the .APK and install it manually. You just have to go to whatsapp.com/android/ and there we will find the file with the latest version of WhatsApp.
In order to install the .APK, it will be necessary to access Settings> Security> Unknown sources and activate this option. Keep in mind that we will have to update the application manually later.
Another alternative is to use WhatsApp Beta Updater, an application that we can find on this Github page. Once installed, it will notify us automatically each time there is a version available.
Each time the notification appears, you just have to click on the yellow download button and follow the steps. So we will have the latest beta of WhatsApp available without having to wait for it to arrive on Google Play.
