Currently, if a user misses a video or voice call from their contacts, there is no way for them to join the ongoing call. However, the latest iOS beta update lets users join a call at any point. Apart from these features, the new beta update brings bug fixes like status update search bug, improved calls (voice, video and group), improved contact management, improved URL sharing, and more.
