While the bug does not seem to affect the operability of the app, users were quick to report the issue. WhatsApp released the first beta version 2.18.109 on April 12.

Therefore, the bug was primarily changing the first alphabets of the affected timestamps with their ASCII codes. So, the beta testing programme will help tech giant to improve the stability of the app. The feature aims aid users in recording voice notes, and along with that users can also listen to their recordings before they are sent.

Rolling out the "WhatsApp Payment" feature will prove to be a game changer for Facebook owned messaging app. According to the report, the recipient was able to download media from a text sent 2 months ago but there for the messages dating back to nearly a year, the application asks to request the sender to send the file again.
