Latest WhatsApp Beta Adds Picture-In-Picture Mode for Video


WhatsAppWhatsApp Betas always give a look at what features WhatsApp is working on and although some do ship with the official app, others get cut and don’t see the light of day. The latest feature is the picture-in-picture picture mode for video that now supports WhatsApp media – the frist version only supported content from Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

WhatsApp Beta(2.19.177) finally updated the ability to view videos in the picture-in-picture mode for video to now include WhatsApp media. You’ll be able to resume texting while you view videos within chats and group chats without disruption.

According to WABetaInfo, You will see the name of the recipient to which you’re sending the video too to avoid sending media to the unintended person.

This mode will also let users play video in the background even if they switch between chats within the app.

This is an exciting prospect if it ever goes live with the official app which is also getting Status Ads starting next year.
