WhatsApp for iPhone lets you watch Facebook, Instagram videos in-app
Days after getting a slew of features like group video calling and third-party stickers, WhatsApp has released an update for its iOS users. WhatsApp for iOS (version 2.18.51) will now allow iPhone/iPad users to watch Facebook and Instagram videos right within the app - a feature WhatsApp released for YouTube in January this year. Here's more.
Everything to know about the update
In its change-log, WhatsApp mentions that in-app video playback will work for Facebook and Instagram. The feature may not be available for everyone right now as the roll-out will be done in phases. Additionally, the update also brings a Picture-in-Picture mode that lets you chat and navigate through WhatsApp while playing the video in a minimized bubble - just like YouTube's picture-in-picture mode.
