WhatsApp picture-in-picture mode now available for all Android users

WhatsApp picture-in-picture mode has been made available on WhatsApp for Android. With the help of WhatsApp picture-in-picture mode, users will now be able to play videos from third-party apps within the messaging app itself.

While this will eliminate the need to exit a chat window for playing a video, the PiP mode has been available on iOS since the beginning of this year. Interestingly, the WhatsApp picture-in-picture mode was first made available on Android beta, last year. The feature is now available for all Android users and users will not be redirected to any external pages, if they want to watch a video sent in a chat from YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and any other third-party platform.

To use this feature, follow the steps

  1. Update your WhatsApp for Android app to version 2.18.380.
  2. Navigate to any WhatsApp chat in which you have received a third-party video link.
  3. There will be a video card with a blurred thumbnail image along with the platform logo.
  4. Tap on the link.
  5. The video will be played on the top half of the WhatsApp chat window.
  6. There will also be an option to watch the video in full-screen mode.
