When it comes to free messaging apps, WhatsApp is the name that usually pops up. WhatsApp is a highly optimized communication tool that excels in providing users with the necessary tools to get in touch with their friends such as free audio calls and online messaging. Moreover, WhatsApp is a cross-platform app which runs on nearly every available operating system.
WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.395 APK Update
Even though WhatsApp is supported by both Android and iOS, the Android version seems to get more attention from the developers. The reason we are saying this is because WhatsApp keeps receiving new features in form of APK (Android Package Kits) which as their name implies, these updates are exclusive to Android users.
Nonetheless, the update is available for download right now and WhatsApp users can install it themselves. This is great since WhatsApp has yet to announce when it plans on releasing the update OTA (over the air) to the wide public and eager WhatsApp users can get it ahead of time.
Sharing Live Locations
The first feature that’s being introduced by this new APK gives users the ability to share their live locations. This works in real time and it makes it easier for people to get together with their friends and family members. This feature will be available in any chat and it can be accessed through the “Attach” icon.
Apps like Instagram and Snapchat have popularized photo filters and it seems like WhatsApp wants a piece of the cake. With that said, the new APK introduces a bunch of new color filters which will help users take their artistic pictures to the next level. The only thing that WhatsApp users need to do is to capture or select a photo, and then just swipe up on the display to select a filter.
