    When you're talking on the phone and you have a call waiting feature on, you hear a beep when there's another person calling you.

    Re: what is the meaning of beep in during calling?

    Our conference calling system announces that someone has joined the conference call with a beep.

    I agree that the call waiting feature is the more likely situation, but it's possible that someone else "beeped in" to mean joined the call.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
