Get ready for PiP video call on WhatsApp

WhatsApp application went from a text messaging application to a video calling application previous year, but it doesn’t imply to be done with the specification just yet. The application looks set to get picture-in-picture performance, a new feature that will make video calls more beneficial in case users want to continue the chatting even they are on the video call. The new WhatsApp application PiP mode for video calling has been speckled in application version 2.17.265 running on the Android Developer Preview.

This adds to the developing list of WhatsApp application features which is released or speckled testing in the year 2017. As per a tweet by the WABetaInfo, which has a good track record when it comes to analysis of forthcoming WhatsApp application features, the Picture-In-Picture mode inside the WhatsApp application was spotted on the version of ver2.17.265 of the Android application and was turned on by default on the Android O developer preview.
From the picture shared of the feature of the app in action, it is recently an analysis of WhatsApp app users will be able to act this PIP window around on the mobile screen or it will hold at a fixed position. Further, it is uncertain if the video chat will continue in Picture-In-Picture mode if users change to other applications. The user might have to wait for this new feature to go up extensively to get more clarity, but this certainly seems like a useful app feature which can prove to be of assistance to all WhatsApp application users on Android device, if it is implemented well. With the Picture-In-Picture mode, WhatsApp application users will get the availability to continue the conversations through video chat while browsing through their text messages.

As this feature of the app has been spotted on the Android device, we will have to hold for some time and see if it will make its way to the iPhone device soon as well, though, given the fact the new specification is said to be using the Android O’s APIs device, that might be a little hard. Before this week, WhatsApp application for iPhone device got an update that brought specification like the ability to pin chats, share any type of file, and so on. The application was also viewed to carry a hidden feature – the capability to play the WhatsApp application videos without leaving the application.
