Good news for the WhatsApp users. WhatsApp has been updated and user experience has changed for the better now in this aspect at least. WhatsApp has started rolling out “Picture in Picture (PiP) mode” which will help the users in viewing videos hosted on selected platforms. This feature is for all the Android beta users running Android operating system (OS version 4.4 and above).
A fan website that tracks WhatsApp, the PiP feature is being introduced for all Android beta users that would allow users to play videos hosted on platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Streamable right within WhatsApp, as reported by WABetaInfo.
Mostly used for video playback, PiP is a special type of multi-window mode. This feature lets the users watch a video in a small window pinned to a corner of the screen while navigating between apps or browsing content on the main screen.
“Read later to discover if the feature is already enabled for you and please report us on Twitter if it correctly works. If you have already updated but you don’t see the feature, please back up your chat history and reinstall WhatsApp if you don’t want to wait more,” WABetaInfo said.
Users need to update WhatsApp version to the 2.18.301 Android beta update to use the new PiP mode. WhatsApp has already implemented the feature on its iOS app and it is expected to be introduced for all Android users soon. The PiP feature was rolled out in January for iOS users.
The Facebook-owned company has over 200 million monthly active users in India and is one of the most popular mobile apps worldwide.
