WhatsApp beta for Android lets you enjoy the latest additions to the messaging service before it hits the final release on the Google Play Store. The latest beta adds the long-awaited dark theme feature. More instructions on how to enable it are in the description below.

WhatsApp is available for Android, iPhone/iOS, and Windows and Mac. WhatsApp is a cross-platform messaging service, so all those devices can message each other. Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to send messages and keep in touch with your friends.

In addition to basic messaging, WhatsApp users can create groups, send unlimited image, video and audio media messages to each other.


No hidden costs: Once you and your friends download the app, you can use it to chat as much as you want. Send a million messages per day to your friends for free! WhatsApp uses your Internet connection: Edge / 3G / 4G or Wi-Fi if available.

MULTIMEDIA: Send videos, images and voice notes to your friends and contacts.

GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group conversations with your contacts. Add or remove group participants, change group themes, and set group icons.

Personal: Set a profile photo that will be shown to all your contacts

NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: Just like there is no additional cost to send international email, there is no cost to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world as long as they have WhatsApp Messenger installed and avoid those awkward international SMS costs.

Say no to PIN and username: Why bother remembering another PIN or username? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS does, and integrates flawlessly with your existing phone address book.

No need to log in/out: No more confusion about being logged off from another computer or device. With Push Notifications WhatsApp is always on and always connected.

No need to add friends: Your address book is used to automatically connect you to your contacts. Your contacts who already have WhatsApp Messenger will automatically be displayed under Favorites, similar to a friend list.

Offline Messages: Even if you miss your push notifications or turn off your iPhone, WhatsApp will save your messages offline until you retrieve them during the next application use.

And much more: Share locations and locations, Exchange contacts, custom wallpapers, custom notification sounds, landscape mode, message timestamps, email chat history, broadcast messages and media to multiple contacts at once, and much more.

What’s new:

End-to-end encrypted backup on WhatsApp

WhatsApp was built on a simple idea: what you share with your friends and family stays with you. Five years ago, we added end-to-end encryption by default, which today protects more than 100 billion messages a day while traveling among over 2 billion users.

While the end-to-end encrypted messages you send and receive are stored on your device, many people also want to back up their chats in case they lose their phone. Starting today, we’re providing an additional, optional layer of security with end-to-end encryption to backups stored on Google Drive or iCloud. No other global messaging service of this scale provides this level of security for its users’ messages, media, voice messages, video calls and chat backups.

You can now protect your end-to-end encrypted backups with a password of your choice or a 64-digit encryption key that only you know. Neither WhatsApp nor your backup service provider will be able to read your backup or access the key required to unlock it.

One of the most requested features we have is making it possible to transfer chat history from one operating system to another while switching phones. We are working hard with operating system and device manufacturers to make this a secure and reliable way.

We’re excited to start rolling out the ability to transfer your WhatsApp history from iOS to Android. This happens without sending your messages to WhatsApp in the process and includes voice messages, photos and videos. To start, the feature is available on any Samsung device running Android 10 or higher, and will soon be available on more Android devices.

When you set up a new device, you will be provided with the option to securely transfer your chats from your old device to your new device. This process will require a USB-C to Lightning cable.

View photos and videos in one go on WhatsApp

While taking photos or videos on our phones has become such a big part of our lives, everything we share doesn’t need to become a permanent digital record. On many phones, taking just one photo means it will take up forever space in your Camera Roll.

That’s why today we’re rolling out the new View Once photos and videos that disappear after opening a chat, giving users even more control over their privacy.

For example, you can send a look at a photo of some new clothes you’re trying out at a store, a quick response for a moment, or something sensitive like a Wi-Fi password.

Like all personal messages you send on WhatsApp, View Ones media is protected by end-to-end encryption, so WhatsApp can’t see them. They will also be clearly marked with a new “one-time” icon.

After the media is viewed, the message will appear as “opened” to avoid any confusion about what was happening in the chat at the time.

We’re rolling out the feature to everyone this week and look forward to feedback on this new way of sending private and disappearing media.

How To Use Whatsapp Have A Look

For added privacy, you can now send photos and videos that disappear from your WhatsApp chats once opened by the recipient.

The media will not be saved to the recipient’s photo or gallery.

Once you send a photo or video to a view, you won’t be able to view it again.

You cannot forward, save, star or share photos or videos sent or received once Media is enabled.

You can only see that the recipient has opened the photo or video once if they have read receipts turned on.

If you do not open the photo or video within 14 days after it was sent, the media will be terminated from the chat.

Each time you want to send a view of a photo or video once, you must select View media once.

Check once if media can be restored from backup if message is not open at the time of back up. If the photo or video has already been opened, the media will not be included in the backup and cannot be restored.

  • pay attention:

Send photos or videos with Views to Trusted Persons only after Media is enabled. For example, it is possible for someone to:

Take a screenshot or screen recording of media before it disappears. You will not be notified if someone takes a screenshot or screen recording.

Take a photo or video of media with a camera or other device before it disappears.

Encrypted media can be stored on WhatsApp’s servers for a few weeks after you send them.

If a recipient chooses to report a one-time view of the media, the media will be provided to WhatsApp. You can find out more about reporting messages on WhatsApp in this article.
