Whatsapp to Unveil New Feature Dubbed “Picture in Picture Mode”


So long we want to keep enjoying the instant messaging app, we won’t get tired of updates. According to reports, some new features are been worked on which are in beta stage and maybe revealed anytime soon.

The feature dubbed Picture in Picture mode allows you view Facebook, Instagram, Youtube videos directly in the Whatsapp app in form of a preview without leaving the app. The play symbol on the video actually looks like a thumbnail.

As shown in the image picture, you will notice the place button on the preview/thumbnail; once you tap on it. It begins to play. Although this may change before it is released.


How Picture in Picture Mode Works

Ok, here’s the drill; Once you hit the play button, Whatsapp shows the video in picture in picture mode as; you can navigate in the chat and the video will still be playing.


This is applicable to Instagram videos also but won’t work for Instagram stories. For now there’s no official date for the release of this picture in picture mode feature. But have this in mind that we will enjoy something similar to this anytime soon.
