Softonic review

Free WhatsApp beta version

The developers of the popular instant messaging application, WhatsApp, has dropped a beta version. WhatsApp Beta offers a glimpse of the app's wide range of new features before its official release on Google Play Store. With this, avid users of the app can indulge themselves and try these functions. Among the newest functions that users can experience is the most-anticipated dark theme feature. Bear in mind, however, that for you to be able to use the beta version, you must ensure that you have updated your WhatsApp program to the latest beta version. Once amended, you will find the Dark theme option under Theme settings.

Experience extensive WhatsApp features

As with any beta apps, WhatsApp Beta aims to see how its new features will fare once its final release. By letting the users use these functions, the developers can check which features need more polishing. Of course, users can also try these up and coming features. Among the functions that the users can try is the call-waiting support, which enables them to decide if they want to accept the incoming call even if they are already on another call. The app also now strengthens its security by offering fingerprint scanning to unlock. Users need only to enable the option in the app' setting. 

In line with its new security features, WhatsApp beta also now comes with a new privacy setting for groups. In this version, users need to send an invitation to their contacts before they could add them to their group chat. The new feature also gives users the authority to accept or decline group invitations and group messages. To implement this new setting, users need only to set up the group options under the account and privacy settings in WhatsApp. They can select one from these choices; Nobody, My Contacts, and Everyone. Picking Everyone means allowing random persons to add you to the group. My Contacts, on the other hand, allows only those who have your address book to add you. Meanwhile, if you select Nobody, you have to approve the invitation first before they can add you. Finally, WhatsApp Beta fixed the bug that causes the battery to drain faster, so you can enjoy chatting longer. 

All in all, WhatsApp Beta is a must-try, especially if you are a long-time user of this messaging tool. Not only because it offers the highly anticipated dark theme features but also because it provides more comprehensive features compared to its previous releases. All the features this beta version has will soon be officially released in its different platforms.
