UPDATE:
WhatsApp Call BETA is now closed.  We will notify as soon as official WA Call is available.
Visit here to upgrade to 2.12.17.

Folks, BETA for WhatsApp Call has started now for Z1 users & Z3 users.

BETA download link has been enabled again.  Please download new BETA version 2.12.13.3 now.
(Updates on fixes here: https://samsung.tizenforum.com/index.php?topic=2271.msg12746#msg12746)

1) Register
Click here to register
NOTE: After registration, wait for 1 working day for your ID to be enabled to open BETA link for app download.
Though the registration page requires Tell Us ID, this is not needed now(steps have been simplified now).  Just enter community login id.

2) Pre-requisites:
For Z1 device:
Ensure your Z1 is on 2.4 version CPB1.

For Z3 device:
Ensure your Z3 device is on version BPB2(software update rollout has started).

3) Downloading BETA version:
Step 1: Launch Tizen Browser on your Z1/Z3 device.
Step 2: Login to Tizen Community.
Step 3: Click here for BETA app link(this link will be enabled 1-working day after registration is done)
Step 4: Download WhatsApp BETA version (2.12.13.2)(2.12.13.3).
Step 5: On installation completion, launch app from the Main Menu(DO NOT launch from Notification panel or DO NOT press on GET again - see limitations below).
Step 6: Download Facebook services update(you will be automatically prompted to do this).

4) Where do I post feedback(in case there are problems) or suggestions:
Just reply to this post here for devs to check.  However ensure to take log dumps while reporting a problem(if you want them fixed 8)).
Procedure to take logs:
https://samsung.tizenforum.com/?topic=175.0


5) How do I uninstall/quit this BETA program:
Its a one-way street:).  Once you are on BETA version, you need to wait till the next official version is released to upgrade from 2.12.13.2->2.official.version.


NOTE: We may restrict the number of BETA downloads based on the registration count(on First-come-first-serve basis).
However FCFS isn't applicable to our frequent BETA users as they hold a "PRIORITY PASS";).


Known Issues/Limitations during installation of BETA version:
1. Size of the App shows just 1KB during download(and not the actual size).
2. Tizen Store client shows "GET" button even after installation is complete.  Do not press GET again(as the app downloads completely once again).
3. Do not try to launch App from the "Installation Complete" notification.  Instead of WhatsApp a different App would be launched.

Mohit when did you register?  If it was before 10am today, your id would have been enabled to access the link already.  Otherwise you need to wait till Monday.

1. Cannot play music after making whatsapp voice call.
2. Ring sound is very slow, no change in speaker.

In fact, all the audio system of the device stops working or give a very low volume output.
