A lot of updates have been ongoing on WhatsApp and we are still expecting more features. The last features that was released prior to this was the ability to transfer any files at all to your WhatsApp contact and it currently enables users to share a maximum file size of 100MB (Android), 128MB (iOS) or 64MB (desktop).
If you are a beta tester, upgrade your WhatsApp to Android version 2.17.263 and you’ll have the sharing of any file feature enabled by default.
The latest update coming to WhatsApp on appstore is the ability to watch Youtube videos directly on your WhatsApp instead of opening in Youtube app. A number of times, friends and family must have sent you a youtube link directly to your WhatsApp but instead of opening WhatsApp, it will open straight on Youtube apps… but now, it’s over.
Finally this won’t happen anymore: this new feature implemented in WhatsApp uses the Picture in Picture concept to view YouTube videos without opening it.
You can pinch on the Picture in Picture mode in order to expand it, or you can open the video in a new WhatsApp section to view it in full screen mode.
Though this feature is still under development but it is available for iOS users… Android users coming soon!
