- WhatsApp Beta on iOS brings ‘Paste multiple items’ feature
- The new beta update also brings a join missed calls feature
- These features are part of WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.214.171.124 update
WhatsApp is known for introducing new features to the platform through beta updates first. We saw major features like WhatsApp Pay, dark mode, disappearing messages, and customisable wallpapers this year coming to beta updates long before the stable rollout. Now, according to WABetainfo, WhatsApp is working on a beta version 126.96.36.199 for iOS users with several new features.
The new update brings a lot of bug fixes along with two new major features. The latest WhatsApp for iOS beta update lets users join in on missed calls if the call is still on. Secondly, users will be able to copy multiple videos and photos, and paste them in WhatsApp to send them across. Here’s a guide on how to paste multiple items on WhatsApp.

Here’s how you can use the feature on your iPhone if you have the WhatsApp beta version 188.8.131.52.
- Open Photos app
- Select multiple photos and videos
- Tap on ‘Export’

WhatsApp will then capture the items copied, from the clipboard and let users send them across.

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.
