To test the latest news that WhatsApp is developing before they are made public and accessible to all users, you must sign up for the beta tester program. This allows access to the functions and tools with which you are experimenting with the application. You can also give feedback and report bugs that are identified.
It should be known that beta or test versions are unstable and therefore problems may appear that cause the app to occasionally work with problems, close by itself, or present some other error. Therefore, to avoid any type of inconvenience, it is best to continue using the public version that is debugged and therefore more stable.
To be a beta tester on Android, you must enter the following link https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.whatsapp/ and click where it says “Become a tester”. An update will be received from the WhatsApp Messenger application realizing that you are already a member of the community.
It is possible to unsubscribe from the testing program at any time, simply by clicking on the button that says “Exit the program” and that is located at the bottom of the page mentioned above. It is possible to continue using the public version of WhatsApp after doing this.
First of all, you have to install TestFlight on the device that will be used to perform the tests. Then, accept the invitation that will arrive by email or through a link to install the beta version of the app. In this case, the official link indicates that there is no availability to be a WhatsApp beta tester on iOS. When it is released then these steps should be followed:
1. Download the TestFlight app on the iOS device that will be used for testing by clicking here.
2. Install the beta version of the iOS app through an email invitation or the public link, which in this case would be this one. Although, as already mentioned, at the moment this program is full and there is no availability, although a place may be released in the future.
3. Open the invitation email or tap the public link on the iOS device where you will be tested.
4. Click on “View in TestFlight” or “Start testing”, or touch “Install” or “Update” for the app you want to test.
