WhatsApp PIP mode is now rolling out in Stable version. To recall, WhatsApp introduced PIP( Picture-In-Picture) mode in October 2018 for Android Beta app. The new feature is available in the latest update.
It is coming after testing of months. The PIP( Picture-In-Picture) feature allows users to view Instagram and Youtube videos inside WhatsApp in a pop-up/floating window without leaving the app. This feature is already rolled out in iOS for over a year ago. If you have not received this feature yet, you can go to the play store app in your smartphone and search for WhatsApp. If there is an update then update WhatsApp to the latest version. The update is rolling out via Play Store and will be available in the WhatsApp version 2.18.280.
Once You get it, you will be able to watch Youtube and Instagram videos in WhatsApp. To do this, When you receive a video link, simply click on play button on the video then the video will open in a separate box and start playing and as the video plays, you can continue chatting. The beta version of WhatsApp also has the PIP video calling feature, which enables users to shrink the video call screen and continue using the app. It is expected that this feature will come in WhatsApp Android soon, but it is interesting that this feature is also available for iOS users.
