WhatsApp may clearly be the top multi-platform messaging app available at the moment, but with other apps like WeChat, Kakao Talk and GroupMe among others closing in, WhatsApp was in a desperate need to freshen up things a little. The developers at WhatsApp have done exactly that and have released the latest version of the messaging app with a Holo user interface.

Along with the Holo theme which gives the app an elegant and simplistic look, the latest version (2.9.2239) also brings a lot of critical bug fixes. The 2.9.2239 version is currently only available for download on the WhatsApp website as an APK. For unknown reasons the latest version of the app is missing from the Google Play Store, though we expect it to be available soon. People who don’t want to wait for it to appear on Google Play can download the APK and manually install it on your Android smartphone.
