Whatsapp Now Has PIP Video Calling And Texts Status Updates

Whatsapp Now Has PIP Video Calling And Texts Status Updates

The feature of Picture-In-Picture mode is that users can now decide the size of the video calling window according to their size. The feature was in test mode on Android since July but has been made available now.

Popular messaging app WhatsApp again updated with two new features for both Android and iOS users for its stable and public build. These features are available now on the latest builds for WhatsApp which comes as Android v2.17.323 and iOS 2.17.52. The update also gives you the ability to set text only, self- destructing status updates.

When in a video call, you can tap back to continue the video call in picture-in-picture mode (Android 8.0+). Currently, this feature is available for iOS and Android users.Whereas the second updated feature is to type your status on a colourful background. Also, it is not confirmed if the feature will work when the user switches to another app during the video call session.

The latest update on WhatsApp also includes text status update. You can click on the button to upload colored text status. With this update, you will now be able to write your favourite quotes on a colourful background of your choice in the font you like. It is a fun feature, but most users still prefer the traditional text-only. This feature will supposedly allow verified business to chat with their clients or customers.

As above mentioned, the text only status is another new entrant in the WA features.

After rolling out the picture-in-picture (PIP) video calls to beta users of its app, WhatsApp has now rolled out the feature to everyone. It will disappear after 24 hours; friends will be able to comment on the status which will come as a personal message to the user.
