How to Enroll into WhatsApp Private Beta for Windows Phone

whatsapp logo squareWhatsApp is one of the most frequently updated social messaging app on each and every platform. On WindowsPhone, WhatsApp runs a private beta test where new features are tested for a limited period of time before they are delivered to the public release channel. If you’re interested to join the WhatsApp Private Beta for Windows Phone, the info below is going to help you.

Joining the WhatsApp Beta for WP

There is no public information or forms inviting application as a beta tester. However, it’s still pretty easy to enroll. All you need to do is to send an email to WhatsApp asking for enrollment into the beta program. If they find you suitable, they’ll enroll you. Its explicitly their individual decision.

  1. Compose a new email and enter in the To field.
  2. Quickly introduce yourself and ask for enrollment as a Beta tester. You can also make use of the draft below:
    I am [Name] working as [Job Title}. I would like to join the WhatsApp Beta for Windows Phone so as to contribute in the improvement of the application. Can I be enrolled, please?
  3. Add the following text as a signature at the end of your email. This helps the automated system in classifying your email.
     Sent from my Windows Phone
  4. Send the email after you’ve finished composing.
  5. Make sure that the email is read by a human and DO reply to the automated response that you’ll receive. Otherwise the email will never be read by a human support staff.
  6. Wait for their reply after you have responded.
  7. If you are selected, they’ll ask you to provide you your Microsoft Account email so that you can be registered in the list of Beta Testers.

  8. Aditya May 31, 2014 at 12:25 am #

    Hello Narender Singh,
    Can i have the xap file of whatsapp beta version? just download it and send m on my email.

    • Narender Singh May 31, 2014 at 8:40 am #

      Aditya, unfortunately you cannot install the XAP unless you are in the beta list of WhatsApp.
      However the good news is that WhatsApp is now back in the WP Store and includes all those features that we’ve been enjoying in the beta.
