As almost every day we have a new update of the beta version of WhatsApp for Android, this time it is the new version 2.17.194. This is what we call a minor update, ie with no apparent changes but with the appropriate performance improvements and minor bug fixes.
Internally, if you notice any change in the APK installation file, and it is only increased in size by 6 Kb, 454 files have been modified, quite a lot related to real-time location and some to cancel Sending messages.
More internal changes in WhatsApp for Android
In addition to this new version of WhatsApp for Android has been added a new file called “answer_call_btns.xml” and the icon “ic_call_caret_up.png”, which makes us assume that soon notice a very slight change in the call interface, since the Icon represents a point of only 4 pixels.
Another change that we noticed yesterday with the fall of WhatsApp was that the option of “Service Status” available in “Settings> Help” was removed, surely because they knew that they were going to throw the system and thus avoid the avalanche Of status requests from the option. Finally, between the strings appears a new filter of images called Chrome, perhaps only with the name we can guess how it will be.
We remind you that to download this Beta version from Google Play before you have to convert into beta testers.
