WhatsApp videos: After introducing the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) feature for Android users in India, WhatsApp has finally rolled out the feature for WhatsApp Web as well. This feature will make multitasking easier with your desktop/laptop. The WhatsApp PiP feature allows the users to message other users while watching YouTube videos and using other apps in the phone. Until now, a user could not message on WhatsApp and watch YouTube at the same time, but now PiP will help the users to operate multiple features on the single screen simultaneously.
