WhatsApp has long introduced support for the popular picture-in-picture (PiP) functionality, specifically in 2018. Basically, whenever someone sends you a video link from YouTube, Instagram or Facebook, you can play the video in a small floating window while you continue your conversation.
Since its launch, few have been new/improvements brought to picture-in-picture mode. However, new information reveals that the company is preparing to implement some changes.
According to the WABetaInfo website, a new version of the PiP mode is already in the testing phase. The differences won’t be glaring, but we can see some new elements that should help improve the user experience.
Picture-in-picture receives control bar in WhatsApp
Through the image published by WABetaInfo we can see that we will now have a control bar, where the buttons are integrated pause/resume, full screen and button to close the video. Previously these controls were placed in the video, ending up harming the viewing experience.
This new addition to PiP mode is being made available in the latest version of WhatsApp Beta, appearing on smartphones that have at least evrsion 126.96.36.199. As this is a relatively simple change, it will be expected that its arrival to the stable version of the application will not take too long.
In addition to this new feature, we also know that WhatsApp is working on the development of others news, such as transcription of voice messages, helped in finding cafes, restaurants and shops, as well as hiding your status only for specific contacts.
