WhatsApp is one of the most popular mobile messaging applications, and just today its latest version was released. WhatsApp 2.12.96 features a fair number of minor improvements in terms of stability and swiftness, so you can keep on messaging without noticing any lag or stuttering. WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook just a year ago, but this sudden move has already had a huge impact on the application’s popularity, and up to this day it is the most popular mobile messaging app.
The latest versions of WhatsApp include voice calling, and a bunch of other features that may easily turn this software into more than just a messaging app. It can also be used to call people, exchange images and videos, etc. WhatsApp runs excellent on the Galaxy S5, thanks to the device’s 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor accompanied by 2GB of DDR3 RAM. The 5.1” fullHD screen delivers crystal clear quality, so you should have no troubles reading and typing messages via WhatsApp’s user-friendly interface.
The latest version of WhatsApp can either be downloaded from the application’s official website or acquired from the Google Play Store. If you opt to download it from whatsapp.com, then fire up your Galaxy S5’s web browser and head to the download page on their website. Select your operating system (Android), and wait for the APK file to be downloaded completely. Open the file nad wait for the installation to complete. If your access is denied, then navigate to the Settings → Security menu of your Android device and activate the ‘Unknown Sources’ option. This should allow you to install APK files coming from sources other than the Google Play Store.
