Now, you can also use the beta version of WhatsApp through PlayStore. Usage of the beta version of an app will allow you to use the latest features even before when it is rolled out to everyone. Therefore, by using the beta version of the WhatsApp, you will be able to test and use the latest features of the app.
To become a tester, you will have to join the testing program of WhatsApp in PlayStore. For your convenience, we have provided the link to join as tester at the end of this post. Upon clicking the link, it will redirect you to the details of the WhatsApp beta testing program. If you are interested to join as a tester for the latest features, hit “Become a tester”.
This will allow you to download the updates whenever a beta version is rolled out.
However, it is not advisable to join the beta versions of an application. Because, it may lead your app to crash sometimes. On the other hand, a stable version is not very likely to crash as it will be rolled out only after it is tested properly.
You can always go back and become a normal user in case if your WhatsApp crashes at any point. To do so, you will have to open the same link mentioned below and click on “Leave the program”.
