To join the programme for Android, you need to head towards the Google Play Store and open WhatsApp or search for it. Once you are on the WhatsApp page, scroll down to the section which says "Become a beta tester tap on I'M In". Then you need to confirm the action on the next page and wait for a few minutes.

After some time, come back to the WhatsApp page on the Play Store to find an update. Once you update the app, the feature should be available to you.
