WhatsApp iOS users can text, view videos simultaneously

WhatsApp may add some new features in the app for iOS

With the latest update for iPhone, WhatsApp now allows its users to watch YouTube videos inside the app in Picture-in-Picture Mode. Previously, whenever you click on a link it will open in the Youtube app or will try to open the video in a browser which is a pretty tedious process without a doubt. Another feature allowing to record audios without holding the record button will help in easing users anxiety levels while recording long messages. We were also not able to replicate the built-in player or PiP on the latest version of the iPhone app, but, the voice message recording lock is there. Throughout the years, the company has rolled out some huge and mini iPad versions for which the user interface in Whatsapp is being revamped. The recent update of WhatsApp has also allowed group administrators to exercise more control over their chat groups, by limiting group chat feature to certain group member and preventing other administrators from deleting the group creator. Many have recieved the voice recording feature but still haven't recieved the YouTube feature. "Want to easily record long Voice Messages?"

Instead, the YouTube video will be displayed in a small window on your screen, which you can resize using a pinch gesture, or maximise to full screen. Until now they had to press and hold the record button to send a message.

During this week, YouTube has also removed ads from another 2 million videos and 50,000 channels to stop those channels from getting profit from disturbing content. YouTube's controversy over violent, predatory videos impersonating as videos for children started about a month ago.

Simply "swipe up to lock recording so you can continue to record without keeping your finger down", according to the description laid out.

The app is most suitable for regions which have low-bandwidth and also enables users to transfer the videos to friends over Bluetooth. This new feature implemented in WhatsApp uses the Picture in Picture concept to view YouTube videos without opening it.
