Whats-App Web’s new picture-at-picture feature makes watchatg video MUCH easier #In_PictureFebruary 22, 2019
WhatsApp is one of the world’s most popular chat apps and frequent updates mean that barely a week goes by without an update of some kind.
This week the Facebook-owned company is adding picture-in-picture video to its web service.
The company has been busy adding picture-in-picture support to the Android and iOS apps for a while.
Everyone with the latest version should be able to watch video in a floating window while they read messages.
WhatsApp had already added picture-in-picture for videos shared within that app.
Before this update video would be anchored in the chat when it was sent.
That meant that you couldn’t really watch and keep chatting.
Now the video hovers above the window, allowing you to carry on reading messages in a thread or even to check out other conversations.
You’ll need to be running the latest version of the WhatsApp web interface.
