WhatsApp finally makes it easier to watch videos without leaving the app

We have witnessed many new features in WhatsApp after its acquisition by the Facebook and all these features are being loved by the users, we have seen the better privacy control features, new status/stories, way better interface and now the UPI based payments feature.

Additionally, the 2.18.51 update also adds further support for group chats, including the ability to add/revoke admin privileges from other users and active admins can edit the description, icon, and subject of an ongoing chat. WhatsApp has been internally developing new features that are about to roll out.

The obvious use - at least for parent company Facebook - is to help users easily purchase retail items that they see with shopping tags in Instagram posts.


However, WhatsApp is reportedly dropping the support for its YouTube feature for iOS 10 and below users.

A year ago in November, Facebook-owned WhatsApp rolled out Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode support for YouTube for iPhone users. Without making any big announcement, the photo-sharing platform added an in-app payments feature for a few accounts.

With support for audio, video, images and whatnot, WhatsApp is shaping up to be a very powerful communications platform for users the world over. This feature appears to be an extension to the WhatsApp Web service meant to make things easier for the users. The rollout of the payments feature has also been confirmed by Instagram. They will automatically be directed to the chat. Most of the smartphone users have the app installed on their smartphones and only a handful use WhatsApp Web on their computers, but did you know that you can use WhatsApp without opening the app on your phone? With the introduction of group video calling, Facebook certainly hopes that the messaging app will become more popular. Also, the social networking giant revealed that the Oculus TV service, which would offer people VR content, would be launched soon. The dating feature also has a messaging option via dedicated inbox rather than Messenger. Maybe WhatsApp would allow users to get rid of ads by buying into a premium ad-free subscription for a fraction of the cost. Microsoft Build is followed by Facebook's F8 Developer Conference.
