Currently, WhatsApp has over 1.2 billion monthly active users worldwide including 200 million across India. The error prompted select users to update to the latest version of WhatsApp in order to continue using the service but there was no update available on the link that redirected users to the Google Play Store.

The WhatsApp version has been refreshed to the new version on Mi App Store. Xiaomi has issued a statement on the matter saying,"A few Xiaomi users reported an issue with WhatsApp on their smartphones". Started a few days ago, Xiaomi devices are affected by a bug which causes an error in the WhatsApp in which the app says "This version became obsolete".

Even without the update, some Android users can use both WhatsApp and YouTube simultaneously, but only if their phone offers split-screen functionality.

WhatsApp "obsolete" error is what many users reported on Twitter on January 13.

Now, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has admitted it had mistakenly pushed a beta version of WhatsApp from its app store, which some of its users had downloaded. "We apologise for any inconvenience faced by our Mi Fans, and promise to be more vigilant going forward" said Xiaomi. Also, the beta versions of various apps are prone to bugs and issue despite getting the latest features beforehand. While WhatsApp in a statement did say that it was a problem with how their app was distributed and something that wasn't under their control, there was no word from Xiaomi on this matter. Later, it was revealed that the issue has been triggered by Xiaomi's Mi App store. Then go to the Google App store and search for WhatsApp in the search section and install the newly updated WhatsApp.
