WhatsApp Beta v2.18.301 update brings the picture-in-picture video mode. The feature was lately introduced on iOS platform and now the Android users have also started seeing it. The stable version of the update is expected to roll out in the coming days.
After the update, you will be able to play third-party videos from major platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram in a floating window while scrolling up or down the chats.
As per the report from the Android Police suggests, the PIP mode will work differently depending on the source of the video. For instance, Twitter will open the video in a new window, while videos shared directly over WhatsApp play inside the platform.
