WhatsApp is the only instant messaging app that boasts of a monthly user base that exceeds 800 million.
This is not a small figure to achieve and what has been at the center of this development is the ability of the app to run on a variety of mobile operating systems.
The major known mobile operating systems are Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Nokia as well as Symbian. All of these mobile platforms are supported by this application, which is why this app has such a huge following from all over the world. However, the latest updates have been coming to a number of platforms such as Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry and iOS while at the same time leaving out the others, for instance, Nokia and Symbian.
The latest version of WhatsApp 2.12.79 beta, however, comes in with updates for those using Symbian S60, Symbian Anna or Symbian Belle devices. However, this version cannot be found or downloaded from the official Opera Web Store since it is still in beta. Nevertheless, this beta version can still be installed on your Symbian S60 device without any issues.
WhatsApp 2.12.79 beta comes with fixes to bugs and errors from previous beta version
Even though WhatsApp 2.12.79 beta free download is the latest version of this instant messaging app, it doesn’t come in with lots of new features as many would have expected. Instead, this beta version only comes in with a bunch of fixes to bugs and errors that were sported in the previous beta version of this app.
As of now, the latest WhatsApp voice calling feature has not been released for the users of Symbian S60 phones. To make the matters even worse, there is no any official communication from the Facebook regarding the availability of this feature. There are even ongoing rumors that suggest that users of Symbian S60 will not be getting this feature on their devices. However, the latest WhatsApp 2.12.79 beta will for sure improve your messaging experience on this application.
How to download WhatsApp 2.12.79 beta and install on Symbian S60 phones
Since the latest WhatsApp 2.12.79 beta cannot be found in the official Opera App Store, the users must get it from WhatsApp’s website. This can be done by simply launching your phone’s browser and then search for www.whatsapp.com/nokia and then go ahead and select v2.12.79 of the app to download it.
Due to the fact that this version of WhatsApp is still in beta, it may have some errors during the execution of commands. Rather than use an unstable version, you may still get the stable version from the official Opera Web store and use it while waiting for the new version to be uploaded in the store. However, this version will not have the smoothness exhibited by the new WhatsApp 2.12.79 beta free download for Symbian S60.
