WhatsApp for iPhone Can Now Play YouTube Videos With Picture-in-Picture Mode


WhatsApp for iPhone has been updated, and brings two new features - the ability to watch
 YouTube videos directly within a conversation, and, the ability to lock recording so users
can record a voice message without holding the button down. Notably, the YouTube feature
comes with Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, allowing users to keep watching the video even
when they navigate to another chat.


The new WhatsApp v2.17.81 app for iPhone is now available to download via the App Store,
 but details the changes in the What's New section. The update was first spotted by
 WABetaInfo, which adds that the YouTube feature may need to be enabled with a server
side switch. We were also not able to replicate the built-in player or PiP on the latest version
of the iPhone app, but, the voice message recording lock is there.
"When you receive a link to a YouTube video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp.
With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another
chat," the App Store description reads.
Earlier, when users clicked on the link, the YouTube video would open in YouTube app
 installed on the smartphones.
The most recent refresh can likewise enable you to record long messages effortlessly.
"Need to effortlessly record long Voice Messages? When recording a Voice Message,
 simply swipe up to bolt recording so you can keep on recording without holding your finger
 down.
WhatsApp is also working on a new feature that will allow users to quickly switch from voice
 to video call while the voice call.
According to WABetaInfo, in a new Android update, WhatsApp is developing a new button
 that will allow users to quickly switch from voice to video call without stopping the voice call
 in progress.
The recipient, however, will be able to reject the upcoming video call if he or she wants.
