In November, WhatsApp announced that by installing its latest update, one can view YouTube videos directly inside the messaging app, in picture-in-picture mode to fulfil what’s possibly the top demand of all users. If a YouTube link has been sent to a conversation, then users can directly view the video through the link on WhatsApp itself, as it will no longer be redirected to YouTube. Instead, the YouTube clip will appear within a small floating window on your screen, thus implying that you can watch YouTube videos and message at the same time.
