WhatsApp is a messaging app that is installed in almost every smartphone. WhatsApp updates are being sent continuously to keep your users engaged on the site.
However, users should be careful before installing the new WhatsApp beta update for Android and iOS. This is because it can make the WhatsApp crash problem worse.
WhatsApp crash can be due to many factors including bug. Do you know what to do if this happens? Do you know what you need to do to get WhatsApp working properly again?
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has released two new beta updates for Android and iOS this week. Update to version 22.214.171.124 for Android and 126.96.36.199 for iOS.
“Unfortunately, there are some critical bugs in both the updates. Regarding WhatsApp beta for iOS, after sending a new status update or sending a message in a group chat, WhatsApp crashes immediately.
In WhatsApp beta for Android, WhatsApp continues to crash on Android 12 for some users when using the 188.8.131.52.11 update, so they can’t use WhatsApp right now,” he said.
What to do in these situations?
For iOS beta testers who want to keep their chat history, there’s a quick fix: users can use Testflight > Downgrade to use an earlier beta version. Select WhatsApp Messenger (or WhatsApp Business) from the drop-down menu. Previous Build > Install an older beta version.
If you use WhatsApp through the App Store, please back up your chat history before installing the new update so that you can reinstall WhatsApp and restore your chat history if something goes wrong.
Android users will have to manually delete the current beta version and install the previous one via APKMirror, though restoring it will require a backup of their chat history.

To make the process easier, rename the downloaded APK to app.apk. Right click on the same folder and select “Open in Windows Terminal”. To verify that your device is connected, run “adb devices” and enter the following instructions to downgrade WhatsApp:
