Most of the users download the latest version of WhatsApp from the Google Play Store. This is the safest and most recommended way to install the updated versions of the app. However, sometimes it takes a longer time for download from the Play Store. So to get the BETA changes and updated features, the latest versions can also be downloaded directly from the official website for WhatsApp. You don’t have to uninstall the older version; the new version will be automatically updated once the latest APK file is downloaded.
