WhatsApp Beta for iPhone supports 'in-app' playback of YouTube videos

It has also introduced the feature of shared media bundling, which will enable users to see all of their pictures and videos in the in-app camera by swiping up.

The news arrives via WABetaInfo, which claims that WhatsApp is now testing the feature with a small number of users on iOS devices.

WhatsApp is apparently testing out support for Google's YouTube within the app, at the moment when you click a link to YouTube it takes you out of the WhatsApp app. There is no news regarding this new feature's availability for Android and Windows users.

The ability to edit and delete messages have both been tested by WhatsApp in past preview versions and both are still absent from the main app.

Instead, he ordered Google to produce contact information for 8,000 employees of the department's choosing. The Labor Department didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

This update has a lot of hidden features (that are features not available yet to the public) and one of which is the possibility to view YouTube videos directly in WhatsApp. Users can't share files above 100MB in size. This feature is not available ti the public as it is now in testing phase. It can be put into fullscreen mode by pinching on the video. You can either pinch the video in the PIP mode to expand or open it in a different section of the app to watch the video in the full-screen mode. This will save time of clicking the link and then directing to YouTube.

This option is now been worked on internally and we assume that the feature will be released to users with larger screens. It is available for iPhone Beta testers. As playing YouTube videos outside the app has been an annoyance for so long, we will eagerly wait to see the feature roll out widely.

The WhatsApp version 2.17.40 also receives Albums which allows user to select multiple photos at once.
