WhatsApp finally lets you play YouTube videos within the chat

The feature let users lock the button while recording the message. However, for many only the unreleased version of the YouTube Go is available to download from Google Play app store.

Earlier, when a YouTube link was clicked on the application, the user was directed to the YouTube app forcing them to switch platforms.

Another feature that WhatsApp for iOS promises is locking recording while sending recorded voice messages.

Right now the company has rolled out this YouTube feature for iOS users only. "With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat".

The YouTube feature lets users watch videos in the Picture-in-Picture mode so that users can watch the videos even when they open another chat. This feature will be useful for people who use the WhatsApp record feature frequently.

Moreover, the recent update would enable users to record long messages easily.

YouTube Go exited beta earlier this week, and is now only available in India and Indonesia.

It is not known when it will be available on Android. After all, the same app which is being used on 5-inch smartphones can never justify the huge 12-inch displays found in iPad Pros which is why Apple seems to have triggered the developers to roll out a more device specific update for the iPad.

According to WABetaInfo, in the new Android update, WhatsApp is developing a new button that will allow users to quickly switch from voice to video call without stopping the voice call in progress. Among 1.2 billion users worldwide, WhatsApp has over 200 million active users in India monthly.

The YouTube Go app also allows you to download YouTube videos on your phone's storage directly in any of the three abovementioned resolutions. The new feature will allow group administrators to confine the group chat feature to select users, claims WeBetaInfo.
