Facebook-owned WhatsApp came up with an exciting new feature of multi-tasking which will enable the users to watch the videos directly from the notifications in picture-in-picture mode.
WhatsApp will soon be able to allow users to watch the videos from the notifications. An attempt made for the users where they will be able to enjoy or watch the videos without opening the main chat from the app. This is the feature which is solely available in iPhone users, using the beta version 2.18..102.5 of WhatsApp.
According to the reports, this feature will be available for all the iPhone users from the App Store. Sadly, there are no announcements on when it will be available for the Android users.
While reports that the feature is only available for the beta users on iPhone, there are demands to have it ‘enabled’ on the stable version of WhatsApp for iPhone which can probably be a server switch.
It is expected that this feature is going to be liked by many users when it will be rolled out to the stable channel and will be available for everyone. Thus, users can view the video without opening the chat and sending the blue tick, letting the sender know that the message was being read.
If the video is viewed from the notifications there is no way to realize that whether the video was viewed or not making it a quirky technique for the viewers to enable the functioning more efficiently.
