WhatsApp picture-in-picture (PiP) mode was rolled out for Android beta. The attribute was formerly under development and wasn’t allowed for beta testers. Currently, WABetaInfo accounts that picture-in-picture mode could be retrieved on WhatsApp Android beta variant 2.18.301. It allows users to view Youtube, Instagram and Facebook movies from WhatsApp app itself.
WhatsApp Android beta testers that cannot access the attribute after upgrading to version 2.18.301, may reinstall the app after backing up their conversation background. The PiP mode is currently accessible for iPhone users. The feature basically lets users play videos in a little window in WhatsApp itself.
This implies a YouTube or even Instagram video connection delivered on WhatsApp won’t open on the YouTube or even Instagram apps respectively over the consumer’s device. Instead, the movies will start in a little bubble in conversation window of the consumer that has sent the connection. The movie bubble comprises play/pause, shut and fullscreen controls too. WhatsApp users may diminish or increase the size of this movie bubble, or transfer it around the telephone’s screen.
But, the attribute doesn’t appear to be running correctly for Android beta users as of today. In accordance with the WABetaInfo file, the movie window shuts when users change to a different chat window inside WhatsApp, which really isn’t true on iOS. The website notes WhatsApp may roll out an upgrade to repair the matter. There’s not any word on if PiP mode will roll out to the general public. The picture-in-picture feature will probably be harmonious with Streamable movies also and will operate on smartphones operating Android 4.4 KitKat and over.
