Getting cool new features before everyone else is easy fun . To be up to date sometimes can take a lot of effort as the fastest way to get an update is to find it once it's leaking, then work on sideloading the new version. Fortunately, there's an easier way to get the latest features for your favorite apps, with WhatsApp being no exception.
Early adopters were definitely pleased when WhatsApp launched a beta version of their popular messaging app, but there was no way to do so when a newer beta version was released, aside from reviewing the site. That's not the case today – Google has made it incredibly easy to sign up for betas for your favorite apps and keep fans out of the way to keep up with future updates.
: Sign in to Google Play Store
Google now makes it easy to jump to app betas by adding a sign-in link to the app's Play Store page. Keep in mind that not all apps have this option, only those that sign up. However, WhatsApp is one of those apps, so this discrepancy has no impact here.
To register WhatsApps beta program, open his Google Play Store page. Scroll to the bottom of the page next. Under "Become beta tester," tap "I'm in". Finally, tap on "JOIN" on the pop-up to complete the process.
If this method works for you, great! You have successfully signed up for the WhatsApp Beta. However, this message may appear on the Google Play Store:
Are you out of luck? Of course not. You only need to:
Method 2: Sign in through the Google Play web link
For whatever reason, apps can indicate that their betas are full when they accept users through a separate web link. Whether this keeps the number of users who register for the beta low, or that is a mistake, is not clear. However, what matters to you is that you can sign up for WhatsApp's beta program.
If the Google Play Store does not cooperate, read the web link to sign up for WhatsApp betas here . Sign in to your Google Account when prompted, then select "Become a tester." Unlike the first method, Google will not confirm your choice, but you may have to wait an hour for the new beta to appear as an update to your Android device.
If you ever want to return to the stable version of WhatsApp, go back to the bottom of WhatsApp's Play Store page and double-tap on "EXIT".
