WhatsApp is an application that currently has over 800 million active users worldwide and it is growing pretty fast after the introduction of the Voice Calling feature. WhatsApp can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store or from the official WhatsApp website (whatsapp.com) but after the trial time ends, you will still need to pay 0.99 dollars per year.
If you want to install the latest WhatsApp “STABLE” version on your Galaxy Y or Galaxy Ace, you will just need to open the Google Play Store, search for WhatsApp and install it on your device.
Downloading and Installing WhatsApp 2.12.96 APK on Galaxy Y or Galaxy Ace
However, in case you want to install the latest WhatsApp 2.12.96 APK on your Galaxy Y or Galaxy Ace, you will need to head to the WhatsApp official website (whatsapp.com) and download the APK file on your Android device.
After the download is complete, you will need to manually install it on your Android device. Before you do that, you will have to enable a feature that allows you to install APK files that have not been downloaded from the official Android store.
This option is called Unknown Sources and can be found on Settings->Security or Settings->Application (it depends on the Android OS version that your device is running on). Once you find the option, you will need to enable by checking the box in front of it.
Now, that you have the Unknown Sources option, you will be able to manually install WhatsApp 2.12.96 on your Galaxy Y or Galaxy Ace. To do this, head to the place where you’ve saved WhatsApp 2.12.96 APK file and install it on your device.
HINT: In case you have an older version of WhatsApp already installed on your Galaxy Y or Galaxy Ace, uninstall it before installing the new WhatsApp 2.12.96 version.
After installing WhatsApp 2.12.96 on your Galaxy Y or Galaxy Ace, you will be able to send and receive messages, videos, photos and even make Voice Calls with all your WhatsApp friends.
Keep in mind that the Voice Calling is the latest feature that WhatsApp has received and it is currently not working at its fully potential. However, we’re pretty sure that the developers will soon fix all the issues that it has, such as:
– lagging during calls
– calls suddenly ending
– calls using too much data.
Using WhatsApp you can also create group chats and talk with 2 or more friends at the same time.
