All these improvements are available for those of you who are enrolled to the beta testing program available on Google Play. If you are not yet a Beta Tester but want to join the program, you simply have to sign up by clicking on the ‘Become a Tester’ button. Another way to install this latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android on your device is by downloading it from some safe websites such as APK Mirror, which allow access to apps signed by Google. Alternatively, you can wait until this latest update will be added to a stable version of the app.

Even if WhatsApp is currently one of the most successful instant messaging app of the world (more that 1 billion monthly active users), the Facebook-owned app has even bigger plans for its future. According to some reports, WhatsApp is preparing to bring structured messages for enterprises/businesses. At least this is what WABetaInfo says with a report on Twitter.

According to WABetaInfo, a new feature has been spotted in WhatsApp’s latest updates on Android, iOS and Windows. With the addition of the new functionality, WhatsApp takes another step to be more business friendly.
