WhatsApp now lets users play YouTube videos without leaving chats

All you need to do is hold the recording button, and swipe it upwards to lock the recording, and after you're done with it, you can simply click on the arrow icon to send the message, or cancel it. Note: This feature is available only for users with the iOS 2.17.81 WhatsApp version.

Instead of focusing on the usual new emojis and business-related updates, they are now working on something very unique and specific to Apple products.

This feature is only for the iOS users at the moment and will soon be launching for Android versions as well.

In Play Store, the app is shown last updated on November 28, 2017.

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

As per the WABetaInfo report, in the new Android update, WhatsApp is also developing a new feature that will allow users to quickly switch from voice to video call while the voice call is still in progress.

Regions other than where YouTube Go is available and functional can also download these videos but they have to join YouTube Red in order to download videos for offline viewing on the YouTube app. Now, the company is rolling out an update for iPhone users which would make watching videos in WhatsApp a bit more easier and fun.

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 picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat", the App Store description reads.

"Want to easily record long Voice Messages?"

In India, WhatsApp has over 200 million monthly active users, while there are 1.2 billion users across the world. With this feature, you can lock the recording, so that you can leave the record button. Sliding it towards the padlock button will let them remove their fingers from the screen while continuing recording voice messages.
