How always have the latest version of WhatsApp
There are two ways to update this application. The first and easiest is through Google Play, where if it is not the refresh button is that you have the latest version. However, it is not the most modern, as WhatsApp take to upload the new version to Google Play, so to really have the latest version should follow the steps I offer below:
- Go to the website WhatsApp.com , either from your PC or your smartphone.
- Click on Download. If you’re using a smartphone must check the option View as computer.
- Android click to download the latest version that exists for our operating system.
- Click on Download Now .
- If you have downloaded to your smartphone, install the application normally. If instead you’ve downloaded to the PC, connect your smartphone via USB and paste the apk and install the terminal normally.
Once this is finished, you will have the latest version of WhatsApp installed on your terminal. I advise perform this procedure with the smartphone, as we get rid of having to connect to the USB device and we can install directly.
I remember that sometimes the application asks you to update, and does it automatically, without visiting Google Play, as happened with the 528. version In these cases, when the application itself that is updated, we can be sure that we the latest version.
