WhatsApp to introduce in-app YouTube playback in iOS app

Share

Users are able to resize the floating window using pinch to zoom, open the video in a full-screen dedicated page, and also hide the window without interrupting playback by docking the video on the size of the chat. Clicking on the link launches the YouTube app to play the video. However that is expected to change in the future.

We recently heard that WhatsApp had started to support more file types and now it looks like more features are coming to the messaging app.

According to the folks at WABetaInfo, it seems that WhatsApp is testing out a feature that will allow users to play YouTube videos within the app itself. The chat app now also allows iOS users to delete multiple files at once.

The feature, should it ever be built out into the main app, will give Apple's iMessage a run for its money.However, it is by no means certain WhatsApp users will be receiving the feature any time soon. This is because; these devices have significantly bigger screens, which is important for this particular feature to work well.

Would you like to see this feature on the Android version of WhatsApp? It is available for iPhone Beta testers. We can't verify this info at this point, but if it's true, we expect that it would make its way to Android also.
