WhatsApp is the most popular and appreciated instant messaging apps for Android and iOS, but also for computers, via its WhatsApp Web. With WhatsApp, users can text friends and family but also can initiate voice calls and video calls. Owned by Facebook, the WhatsApp instant messaging app is used by hundreds of millions of users worldwide. Now, WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.298 Beta is available.
Why is WhatsApp the best instant messaging app in the world?
WhatsApp is a free app and, besides that, it doesn’t imply additional costs for texting or calling your friends as it runs on the Internet, be it 3G or 4G connection or WiFi. You can text, phone, or video call how much you like and how many times you want, and you won’t consume one cent for that but only your mobile data, that if you don’t use WiFi.
Also, WhatsApp permits users to share multimedia files, as well as documents instantly, allows for free group chats, there’s no need to sign up (WhatsApp uses your phone number), and enables offline messages.
Above all, with WhatsApp, you can share your location, set custom wallpapers, access email chat history, backup your messages, exchange contacts, and many other features.
WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.298 Beta is now available

According to the release note, the new WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.298 Beta came out with a couple of changes regarding the group chats. So, with this new version, group chat admins can now opt to permit only admins to send messages to a group. To do that, they have to open “Group info” and tap “Group settings.”
Also, the new WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.298 Beta would allow non-admins to read admins’ messages, but they can only respond in private, not in the group chat.
