The WhatsApp Android Beta program recently went live on the Google Play Store, allowing those who signed up, to download and test WhatsApp beta builds.

Previously, if you wanted to test a beta version of WhatsApp, you’d have to go to their website and download the APK. At times, beta versions would include big new features, other times they’d just be small fixes. Features like Voice calling, new emojis, Material Design and others were first seeded via these test builds.
