As you already know, one of the most popular IMs is WhatsApp Messenger and its user base is growing every single day. Because of that, WhatsApp has to support thousands of different devices and here comes the beta program. It's aimed at testing and squashing every single bug that's there to give the best experience to the end user.
Server-side feature rollouts
Just like Google, Instagram and Facebook, the WhatsApp app is getting some new features, which are being released for A/B testing before the official launch. It lets developers test their code without the need of the user to update the application. It's also easier to analyze and add minor changes.
You can track all changelog updates and version changes on the WhatsApp beta updates by following our @SocialApps channel on Telegram.
