WhatsApp brings Picture in Picture Feature for YouTube and Instagram Videos

WhatsApp has finally started rolling out 'Picture in Picture (PiP) mode' for viewing videos shared from select social platforms, for all Android beta users running Android 4.4 and above. In WhatsApp, the feature shows up within the chat window when you receive a YouTube, Instagram or Facebook video link.

WhatsApp has added PiP mode in its beta variant

On tapping the play button the video expands and takes up space on the top half of the chat window in the app itself. You can expand the video to full screen or swipe it away to close it. You can also move it around and pause or resume the video, or open the video in the right app - depending on its source. 

The best part is you can comment about the video in the chat window as both the video and chat remain active.

Download Beta Version 2.18.303 here!

With such an interesting feature from WhatsApp, Telegram needs such updates too in their app, now that PiP had proven to be an amazing utility.
