WhatsApp 2.17.229 for Android is now available for download. The latest beta update comes with album feature. With this new feature, you will be able to share multiple photos and videos at once and they will be grouped together, saving space in the chat screen. However, the album won’t be created if one of the photos contains a caption, at the moment.
