The first signs that WhatsApp is serious about bringing picture-in-picture mode to Android phones surfaced about two months ago when a beta version of the Android app included the fabled feature. 

While iPhone users benefit from the PiP mode since the beginning of 2018, it looks like Android fans had to wait almost one year to get it.

Oh, well, better late than never, so we’re happy to report that if you run the latest version of WhatsApp on your Android phone, you’ll be able to watch YouTube videos directly within the app. The same goes for Facebook and Instagram videos that your friends share with you in a WhatsApp conversation chat.

Whenever you get a video link in your WhatsApp chat window, you’ll now have the option to watch it using the picture-in-picture mode without having to open a third-party app.

It’s a simple but neat new feature to have in a messaging app, so we can’t help but wonder why it took WhatsApp to make it available on Android devices.

  1. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind
    prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Thank you!

  2. I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
    A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

  3. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  4. obviously like your web-site however you need to check the spelling on several of
    your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and
    I in finding it very troublesome to tell the reality nevertheless
    I will certainly come back again.

  5. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search

    rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.

  6. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
