The last week, WhatsApp has released the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update and it brought a critical issue to some people on Android 12, unfortunately. Those users were unable to use WhatsApp because WhatsApp continuously crashed every time the user tried to open the application.
The reason of the crash is unknown but WhatsApp started releasing the WhatsApp for Android 18.104.22.168 update publicly. After updating to this version, beta testers lost some beta features: this is because this version is not a beta release but it is considered as a stable update, ready to be submitted to the Play Store for everyone. Fortunately, WhatsApp is now pushing the new 22.214.171.124 update to beta testers on the Play Store, including the fix for the crash.
As we explained in the article about what you can do when WhatsApp keep crashing, it’s very recommended to back up your chat history before installing a new beta update: being a beta version, things like that may happen again so it’s better to be ready backing up your chat history on Google Drive or locally.
