WhatsApp has submitted a new beta update through the Google Play Beta Program, WABetaInfo reported, saying that it has brought the version up to 22.214.171.124.
"After several updates that addressed bug fixes and general improvements, WhatsApp has released today the 126.96.36.199 beta update," it said.
According to WABetaInfo, the version has no major update, however, the feature WhatsApp is working on in this build is "the mention badge".
The new feature is pretty simple: when a WhatsApp user receives a mention in a group chat, a new badge would be added in the group cell.
However, the feature is under development, and it will be available in a future update.
Moreover, WhatsApp has also released a new animated sticker pack called "Taters n tots". It is available for previous versions as well.
