WhatsApp has a web version which users can use to access their chats on a computer. This is handy as it means that they won’t need to keep turning to their phone whenever they are working on their computer. Now, it looks like the web version of WhatsApp just got a lot better thanks to a recent update.
In an update made to the web version of WhatsApp, it seems that the web version now supports picture-in-picture mode. This is similar to the mobile version of WhatsApp which allows videos to be played in a separate floating video player. This lets users continue to chat with their contacts, move to a different chat, all while the video is still playing.
However, it seems that the web version might actually be better and more useful because it means that users will be able to play the video while chatting with their friends and continue to use other applications at the same time. So far only a handful of video platforms are supported which includes YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Streamable.
In order to take advantage of this new feature, you will need to access WhatsApp via the web. We know that there is a desktop app but for now, this feature is limited to the web version, but perhaps it will arrive at its desktop counterpart at a later date.
