Here’s the bad news for those who have actually installed the Gold version. It’s a hack. Yes, if you’ve installed this version, your phone in all probability has been hacked and you now have some sort of malware on your Android phone. Hard-reset your phone, install an antivirus, if you still can get it off, flash your phone original firmware and get it off your system cos it’s probably stealing your personal information.
In other news, The WhatsApp BETA 2.16.94 for Android out and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. Interestingly, it’s yet unsure if the Video Calling feature has been added to the phone. Apart from that no major changes are noticed in it.
