WhatsApp now lets users play YouTube videos without leaving chats

This new update brings two new features to the app - the ability to watch YouTube videos within the chat window and the option to record voice messages without holding down the microphone button. After that you will be able to open and watch YouTube videos without leaving WhatsApp.

Users can also jump between different chats without the clip pausing or closing, The Independent reports.

"With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat".

When recording a Voice Message, just swipe up to lock recording so you can continue to record without keeping your finger down, ' read the AppStore description.
