WhatsApp tests PiP video support for one more social network on Android and iOS beta along with a new wallpaper customization option for individual chats

WABetaInfo has recently reported some new updates regarding the famous social messaging app, WhatsApp. So, the messaging giant app is working on two new features. The first one is a ShareChat video support option that will be made available for the Android beta version v2.20.197.7 and iOS beta version v2.20.81.3.

This latest support functionality will let the users of both Android and iOS beta WhatsApp versions watch ShareChat videos within the app through a floating video just like a YouTube or Facebook video link appears.

ShareChat is an Indian social media application that has been active and very popular amongst the Indian since 2015. It has more than 60 million monthly active users and it supports 15 languages of India. The app allows the users to share private messages, tag each other while enabling them to share jokes, videos, songs, and any other social content with other unknown users as well.

So, this new feature in the beta versions of WhatsApp will make it possible for the users to share and watch videos on ShareChat within WhatsApp. When a user shares a ShareChat video on WhatsApp, a video box will appear in the chat, and once the user clicks on the Play button, the video will start playing in ‘picture-in-picture’ mode within the WhatsApp chat.

It is not known when this feature will eventually roll out, but according to WABetaInfo, once it is officially launched, it will be available for the users within a day of its release.

The second update by WABetaInfo is related to a new wallpaper customization option that WhatsApp is working on these days. Not much detail is known about it, but it is most likely going to allow the users to customize the wallpapers in their individual chats. Once this feature is officially launched, it will allow the users to have fun and play around with their wallpapers in different chats, and that is going to be quite interesting to see.



Apparently, WhatsApp is working really hard for the past couple of months, and there is always a new update ready regarding new and upcoming features and tools that WhatsApp keeps working around.

Only a few days back, there was the news that WhatsApp is bringing the feature of ‘expiring messages’ to its beta version for Android. If enabled, this feature will self-delete messages in chats after a week. This is going to be a crucial optimization from WhatsApp because it will not only be great from the security point of view, it will also not let history build up in chats. There are many other interesting features that WhatsApp is working on these days.

Looks like WhatsApp is busy in experimenting with new features, and that is a great thing for the users.
