WhatsApp Messenger is one of the most popular text-messaging app on smartphone platform. Now the company has released a new beta version 2.17.265 for Android, which comes with a new feature, picture-in-picture (PIP) mode for video-calling which available for those handsets that are running on Android O Developer Preview.
The feature would let users minimize the video call window into a smaller window so that users can simultaneously Chat with other WhatApp users while continuing their ongoing video call conversation. There is no information regarding if WhatsApp users will be able to move this PIP window around on the screen or it will stay at a fixed position. Another concern is if the PIP feature will work in a multi window mode.
As of now the feature was only spotted on Android O Developer Preview which could mean the feature could be launched alongside the upcoming Android O and there is no information about when will this feature makes it way to IOS.
