San Francisco, Dec 13: Facebook-owned WhatsApp has released a new beta that brings in a number of tweaks, includung a fix for a serious bug that caused the last version of WhatsApp beta for Android to crash for many users.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp has become the latest Voice over Internet Protocol services provider to support call waiting feature even as the company has skipped adding call holding for now, a report said last week.
"Fortunately the 2.19.366 beta update is finally available on the Play Store (if you don't see it yet, please wait 30 minutes and it will be ready to be downloaded) that fixes the crash issue and all other bugs," WABetaInfo posted on its website on Friday.
"WhatsApp has added new skins for 6 emojis," it added.
Earlier, when somebody would try to call you on WhatsApp while you were already on the phone, they would hear it ring, but, no one would answer. The call would then get disconnected. Call waiting is available in v2.19.352 stable (APK Mirror) and above of WhatsApp, and v2.19.128 (APK Mirror) of WhatsApp Business, the report added.
