You’ll soon see YouTube videos on WhatsApp!



YouTube videos on WhatsApp-Today WhatsApp has released a new update in the App Store. Version 2.17.40. Of the instant messaging application has many hidden features (which are not yet available to the public) and one of them is something that users have been waiting for: the ability to watch YouTube videos in WhatsApp without having to leave the app .

How many times did you receive a YouTube link in WhatsApp and do you mind that the messaging application should use the third-party application to view it? Finally, as the WABetaInfo portal reveals, this will not happen any more, since in the latest version of the application for iPhone and iPad there is a hidden function that uses PiP (Picture in Picture) technology to watch YouTube videos without opening it.

You can tweak PiP mode to expand the youTube video in WhatsApp or you can open the video in a new WhatsApp section to see it in full screen mode. You can also momentarily hide PiP mode without stopping the video to better read your messages by sliding it to the right. In this way for example you can continue to play the audio while chatting with your friends.

The iPhone 8’s wireless charge would come later, with iOS 11.1

When can YouTube be used in WhatsApp?

This feature is still in development and, in fact, it is not possible to keep the video active if the chat is changed: in that case, the PiP mode will disappear, unfortunately. Likewise, it is not possible to use Picture in Picture mode on most versions of WhatsApp for iOS, as this feature is only available on iOS 9 for iPad. Probably a new API will be available in the next versions of iOS that will allow to use the Picture in Picture mode also in WhatsApp for iOS.

The most important information is that this feature is really compatible with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S +, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus due to the screen size. This may change in the future and be compatible also with iPhone 5, iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. Hopefully, it will be enabled with a new WhatsApp update in the App Store when the feature is ready.

Interestingly at the moment there is no news that the ability to watch YouTube videos in WhatsApp will come to Android, but hopefully after landing on iOS we soon see this tool in future versions of the messaging app for the operating system Google.
