WhatsApp for iOS gets picture-in-picture for video calls • AapkaDost

WhatsApp is rolling out a picture-in-picture feature for its iOS app with the latest update. This allows users to access WhatsApp or other apps without turning off the video feed during the call.

The company rolled out this feature with the 23.3.77 version of its iOS app. Until now, if you switched to another app on your iPhone while on a WhatsApp video call, the other person would no longer see your video feed. The new feature allows you to respond to a message or search for information on your phone without interrupting the conversation.

WhatsApp first announced this feature last December, saying it was testing the picture-in-picture for iOS for video calling with select people.

In addition to this feature, WhatsApp is also releasing the option to add a caption while sending documents, both on iOS and Android.

The company is also testing a feature that will allow users on iOS 100 to send photos or documents all at once. This feature is available for Android users with the latest update.

Earlier this month, WhatsApp rolled out a number of status-related features — the app’s own implementation of the Stories format — including voice updates, emoji responses to statuses, rich link previews in statues, limiting who can view an update, and showing rings around profile photos if they have uploaded a new status.
