WhatsApp is one of the most used instant messaging applications in the world. The secret lies in the fact that the application is multiplatform offering many value-added services such as voice calls, video calls, multimedia sharing, group chat not to mention end-to-end encryption of messages. A few days ago, and exactly the January 13, several users have started to notice an error, which prevented him from using the application by reporting the message: "This version of WhatsApp has become obsolete on 13-gen-2018" then asking users to update the program using the Google Play Store.

As you may have guessed the error is aimed at Android users, and most of these had a Xiaomi smartphone. The problem is that when you tried to update the app from the Google Play Store, the latter was already updated and then you could not do anything about it. Someone has taken steps to uninstall WhatsApp from their smartphone and reinstall it directly from the software house site or from the Play Store, thus solving the problem.
The blame for this, at least in part and for owners of Xiaomi smartphones, it is right of Lei Jun's OEM because the engineers in the presence of the technological giant have accidentally uploaded a beta version of the APP WhatsApp on the Mi store where the automatic update option is enabled by default and then the application has been updated automatically, causing chaos. Xiaomi corrected the error by inserting a new version of the messaging application on its market, solving the problem. Finally the company apologizes for any inconvenience faced by their fans and promises to be more vigilant in the future.
