WhatsApp testing in-app YouTube playback in latest beta

WhatsApp testing in-app YouTube playback in latest beta

The pinned chats feature which is already available for Android users, basically allows user to highlight their favourite chats so that it is easily accessible all the time and users doesn't have to go through the pain of going through host of messages to find any particular chat. But now, according to some reports, the messaging platform will soon let you play content from YouTube within the application itself. WhatsApp updates that are still on cards are live-location sharing, revoke/recall button, edit message feature and YouTube videos. This means that you will not have to leave the chat app to run any YouTube video link that you receive in the app. The video playback does not continue when you change the chat. Other features which will be coming with the update are a pinch to zoom option and full-screen mode. The report also says that the feature is now only available for Apple iPhone 6 or its higher variants. But with the new update set to come in soon, things are looking really bright for the users of this text messaging platform. This maybe because of a need for larger display size for videos, the report said.

What is one of the most annoying features that you have encountered while using WhatsApp?

Global allies such as the United States are anxious that the row could affect coalition counter-terrorism efforts against Isis. It is not clear if the UAE government's intelligence agencies carried out the hack or hired contractors to do so.

This is not a feature that will be remotely enabled, at the moment (so also this may change in future), but it will be enabled with a new WhatsApp update on the AppStore when the feature will be ready.

WhatsApp team off late has been rolling out new features to all its major platforms and testing them on its Beta Versions before releasing them to the public version of the application.
