Billion people use WhatsApp, one of the most popular instant messaging apps of all time. Several Android beta users of WhatsApp recently faced a glitch where the app displayed an error message indicating that their version was “outdated.”
This caused problems for individuals impacted, since they were unable to utilize the application for a considerable amount of time. Several individuals attempted to resolve the issue by resetting their computer’s date to an earlier date, however this did not appear to work. It appears that the app developers quickly identified the issue and published a new beta version of WhatsApp for Android (v18.104.22.168) to address it.
The most recent WhatsApp beta version fixes the “outdated” problem message.
If you see a “out of date” error message on WhatsApp, you must upgrade the app to the most recent version, since this resolves the issue. If the new version is not functioning for them, users can also opt out of the beta and revert to the standard app version. But, you may lose access to some new features that are exclusive to the beta version of the application.
For the uninitiated, WhatsApp assigns an expiration date for each app version, ensuring that users always utilize the most recent and updated version. In addition to bug repairs, new features, and essential security upgrades, these updates may also include bug patches.
