WhatsApp is a straightforward application. You just need to get a bit comfortable with its settings.
Open Play Store and search for WhatsApp
Find the applications manager from your Home screen and tap to open it. Use the search bar in the Play Store to type “WhatsApp” and tap the most relevant option in the list.
Open the Update section
Once you do the previous step, the app will redirect to the WhatsApp page, where you’ll see two buttons: “Uninstall” and “Update.” The second one will be there only when the update is available.
Tap the green “Update” button and let the program download the latest version. Much like in the App Store, the button will change to “Open” once the program is available.
Update and stay safe!
Some people love to have beta software on their devices (we call them “update junkies”). There’s the other end of the spectrum: people who never download the new versions. While the former is an “untreatable illness” that only causes minor inconveniences like bugs, older software is outright dangerous, as it’s always easier to hack. Follow these uncomplicated steps to keep your device and personal details safe.
