Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp has swiftly responded to user feedback by rolling out a bug-fix update aimed at resolving a widget-related problem on its Android beta version. Numerous users encountered a glitch after installing the previous WhatsApp beta update for Android. 

According to the report of WABetaInfo, the app's widget failed to load and display the list of incoming messages, causing inconvenience for those who rely on the widget for quick access to their messages.

Unlike previous issues that couldn't be resolved by restarting the app, this particular bug has now been effectively addressed. The WhatsApp beta for Android 2.23.17.13 version, which has been released as a bug-fix update, rectifies the widget malfunction which enables users to once again use it without encountering this specific bug. This recent update follows a series of bug-fix releases aimed at addressing various issues reported by users.

According to IANS, on the outage monitor website DownDetector, reports of the users peaked at over 41,000. In June, the Meta-owned platform faced a global outage that lasted for about two hours.
