According to the WABetaInfo user, not only this huge bug does not let users receive any kind of media messages, but it also creates big problems with text messages. “Don’t update,” was the clear warning of the beta tester, which was followed by another even more alarming message “Seems there are issues also for text messages.”

Of course beta testers are well  aware that beta versions are not exactly safe, and that new features may create some problems. At least until they are not yet added in stable versions. So if you don’t have time to waste, it is safer not to download this latest update. But on the other side, if you are still eager to have your device updated with all the latest new features, you can download this 2.17.20 version of WhatsApp from the Windows Store and the Google Play Store.

Despite the issues brought by this latest version, recently the popular Facebook-owned app has rolled out several new features for the joy of its many user. Features such as more than 100 new emoji. Not to mention the new important option available for iOS users that lets Siri read out users messages.
