The popular social messaging app, WhatsApp has rolled out two new features for iOS users that will let them play YouTube videos right within the instant messaging app and at the same time, users can navigate to another chat while watching the video.
The new feature might not come in as a massive change, but watching videos while chatting with friends could be a boon for many and will surely make instant messaging easier and faster.
The biggest change is that with picture-in-picture mode (PiP), users can now play YouTube videos directly within the app. Now when you receive a YouTube link and click on it, the video will open within the app itself and float on the window.
The new update also makes it easier for users to record long voice messages. Unlike before, users also get relief from a voice messaging. When recording a Voice Message, users can now simply swipe up just swipe up to lock recording so you can continue to record without keeping your finger down. Sadly, the same is not yet available with video recording. The new update is likely to roll out for Android soon.
Besides, WhatsApp is also reportedly working on a new feature that will allow users to instantly switch between voice and video calls without stopping the voice call in progress.
