 Tech: How to install WhatsApp Beta on Windows phone

Beta version of WhatsApp for Windows phone comes with many interesting features like live location updates and ability to edit sent messages.

Here is how you can install the Beta version of the instant messaging application on your Windows phone:

Firstly, uninstall the application from your device if you have one. remember that uninstalling the app may make you lose data and conversations.

Secondly, either search for Microsoft Beta on Windows store or download the app directly.

Thirdly, after the Windows Store opens up on the screen, start downloading the app for free.

Fourthly and finally, once WhatsApp Beta is downloaded on Windows phone, enter your phone number and start using the device.

Users who already have WhatsApp Beta on their phones can uninstall the same and install the common WhatsApp once again. Though users can have WhatsApp Beta and the common WhatsApp installed in their devices at the same time, yet it is good to avoid so, because it might create confusion and disruption during use.

WhatsApp Beta is only for Window 8.1 and Windows 10 mobile phones. Those with an older version of Windows phone, will not be able to access the feature. WhatsApp Beta can also come with virus, so think before you install the app.
