WhatsApp Messenger is regarded as being one of the best communication tools ever made. This app is packed with numerous features such as free texting, video and audio calls alongside others which enable people to communicate with each other. Things get even better since WhatsApp is also a great app for sharing videos, documents and audio files.
WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.407 APK Update
One of the best things about WhatsApp Messenger is that it keeps evolving every day. The developers behind the app are always hunting for new features to make the app better and thus, WhatsApp is constantly receiving new updates. In fact, a new update which brings the app’s build number up to 2.17.408 has been recently published.
The update is scheduled to roll out OTA (over the air) to the wide public in the upcoming days but eager users can download it ahead of time by manually installing the APK version of it. Also, since this is an APK (Android Package Kit), Android users are the only ones allowed to install it.
Moreover, the app measures in at 42.4MB and it can only be installed on smartphones that run on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher. iOS users will probably receive the same update but at a later date.
The reason why WhatsApp Messenger users should hurry up and download this new update is because it introduces two new features. The first one is location sharing which as its name implies, it enables users to share their location in real-time with their friends and family members.
Secondly, WhatsApp Messenger users will now be able to add color filters to their pictures. These filters are introduced alongside the new update and they can be accessed by simply swiping up on the screen after snapping a picture with the WhatsApp camera app.
