WhatsApp is one of the most important applications for millions of people in the world, so much so that any change in its operation ends up being highly commented, whether it is for the better or for the worse.
For example, the limitations imposed on forwarding of links angered many sectors of the population, as they thought that this would restrict their freedom of expression. But in return, other news, such as the inclusion of night mode or the ability to delete sent messages , were received much better.
This is where a key element comes in: when are these news received? WhatsApp is not a friend of announcing the changes they are working on or when they will arrive: they are only known when they publish the update or when websites like WAbetaINFO filter these news after having tried a beta version.
Hence, we write about the latter, how can you get a beta version of WhatsApp to receive updates and news before anyone else?
HOW TO SIGN UP FOR THE WHATSAPP BETA
It is not necessary to do anything suspicious or illegal to be part of the WhatsApp beta program, although it must be understood that there are several levels of access. There are exclusive beta programs that are not public and then there is the program open to all users who want to register, although this is only possible on Android and not on iOS, on the iPhone.
To access the beta of WhatsApp on Android, just register at this link from your mobile. Once that is done, you will be able to download a new version of WhatsApp that is still in beta, but that includes new functions and new bug fixes. There will not always be very big news between the beta and the final version, but it is the way to get the new thing before you.
If at any time you decide that you do not want to continue being part of the beta, because it gives you bugs (this can happen, although not always) or because you prefer to have the other version for other reasons, accessing this link again and exiting the beta you can go back to having the standard version of WhatsApp.
“What if I have iOS?” Well, we have bad news. The beta of WhatsApp for iPhone is not only more exclusive, but it requires the installation of a test app, Testflight. Although this works very well and is very intuitive, the problem is that more people cannot be added to the WhatsApp beta on iOS and it is not known when they will accept more.
Even so, if you want to be aware and know well how the WhatsApp beta works on iOS, you can access this link on the official Apple website .
Having said all this, it goes without saying that installing betas always entails some risks, since they are not final versions and a utility that has the beta may never reach the final because the application developers have decided that they did not want to include it. In turn, being a non-final version, there may be bugs that are only solved in the face of the finished version.
WHATSAPP NEWS THAT WILL ARRIVE VERY SOON
One of the next novelties that WhatsApp will include soon, and that has already been known through the beta versions, is the new way of managing internal storage , since now it will allow memory to be managed to better free photos and videos that take up space.
Another great novelty that will come, and that is highly anticipated, is the possibility of using a WhatsApp account on several devices . This new feature that WhatsApp is testing would allow it to be used simultaneously on up to four devices. This means that we can have WhatsApp open and at the same time on several mobiles or tablets.
Then, another update that is in the making, is to be able to silence annoying groups in a more effective way, without them reappearing in the first positions when someone speaks.
And if you are one of those who constantly need to search for messages on WhatsApp, know that an advanced message search system will soon arrive that will make your life somewhat easier, being able to also select images and videos.
Finally, as security is very important, WhatsApp works on an extra layer of protection for your messages, not when you send them, since they are already highly protected there, but when they are stored as a backup. At the moment, it is not clear how it will work, but they are working on it.
