  • WhatsApp update allows Apple iPhone users to play You Tube videos

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.

Right now the company has rolled out this YouTube feature for iOS users only. The latest version of the app does not have the PiP or inbuilt player features for now.

The information confirms from a Twitter channel which is known for bringing the best Whatsapp updates even before an official announcement is made.

The YouTube Go app also allows you to download YouTube videos on your phone's storage directly in any of the three abovementioned resolutions. With the update, smartphones are about to become very much like computers making it easier to work on multiple apps at once and not be limited to just one app at a time. This latest update also lets you record long audio messages. According to the changelog of the application listed on Apple's App Store, the new update also lets users lock their voice recording for sending long audio messages easily.

'Want to easily record long Voice Messages?

YouTube Go exited beta earlier this week, and is now only available in India and Indonesia. Over the past few months, WhatsApp, the most popular instant messaging app in the world, has taken the lead by regularly adding new features on its app across Android and iOS. This would be annoying if the message was long or you wanted to do something else while the message was being recorded.

Reportedly, the application is now testing another feature which will allow the users to switch from voice to video call quickly while the call is still in progress without stopping the conversation.
