Just when everyone came to normal from the good news of Whatsapp’s calling feature, another big bang from the messaging giant is here. If you’ve been waiting for that special day when messaging app WhatsApp could be updated with the Material Design of Android 5.0, the good news is that day is here. You won’t find this update in the Google Play Store yet, no matter how hard you try. But by clicking on the sourcelink at the end of this post, you can download the apk file (19MB) to version 2.12.34 of WhatsApp.


You will get to enjoy all of the new animations and changes to the UI of the popular app. Besides the new UI, WhatsApp’s Android users can now make phone calls over the app without having to be called first.

Group chat info and profiles now look a lot nicer, with a clean layout and a large cover image that shrinks to a titlebar with the dominant color from said image.


Still, the improved layouts and neater iconography are a breath of fresh air. If you want to see for yourself, what the Material Design update looks like right now, grab the latest version from WhatsApp’s site.

( You  can thank us later, though 😉 ! )
