When it came to trying the latest features on WhatsApp, the Android Beta users and even Windows Beta users had the edge over iOS users. WhatsApp Beta for Android has been known to be a thriving community which has early access to every new feature being rolled out. However, that hasn’t been the case for iOS WhatsApp Beta, as previously the Beta testing for WhatsApp iOS has been a fairly restrictive process. Although things have recently taken an exciting turn as WhatsApp has announced that the application’s Beta version will now be publicly available for iOS users.
How to Install WhatsApp Beta for iOS
Now iOS users who are eager to try and test the latest unreleased features of WhatsApp will be able to do so, thanks to this new public release of WhatsApp Beta for iOS. To install the WhatsApp for iOS beta version 2.18.102 on your device, you will first have to head over to the App Store and download TestFlight app.
After you have completed the installation of TestFlight, you will need to follow this link (https://testflight.apple.com/join/s4rTJVPb) to get on the Beta list for WhatsApp Beta for iOS. Also, if we are to go by the report of WABetaInfo, who first published this news, then interested users should hurry up since right now limited users will be able to sign up for WhatsApp Beta version on iOS. To proceed further with the installation, you will be required to tap on Install when the dialogue box appears. You will be prompted to select whether or not you want to replace the existing version of WhatsApp with the new Beta version.
After you are done installing, you will have to Open the new WhatsApp Beta app on your device. We recommend that since this method involves new installation of the software, you should back up your chats on WhatsApp. Also, this installation does not remove WhatsApp data from your device so you will only need to back up your files on your device and not on the cloud.
WhatsApp Beta for iOS Gets Updated in Every Two Days
As per the report from the tipster, the WhatsApp Beta application for iOS will be updated in every two days, and users will be able to spot the latest features before they are rolled out commercially for the stable builds of WhatsApp. As a precautionary note, the tipster has also said that users should keep their chat backup always on since a lot of features on the app might be buggy being in the developmental stage. Also, in case you are a bug hunter, and you spot some discrepancy in the application then you can head over to the Contact Us page in WhatsApp Settings to inform the company about the bug.
