Android Oreo WhatsApp Users Get Picture in Picture Video Calling
WhatsApp is bringing a whole new array of updates to market on its Instant messaging app coming after the developers introduced the text-only status some weeks back.
The tech company has recently released a stable version of the application which comes as an upgrade to the beta version which was released a while back and loaded on this stable version is the ability to make Picture in Picture or PiP video calls on the Instant Messaging app.
The latest upgrade comes with two significant updates which are the PiP integration and the text-only Status Messages.
The PiP allows for a video screen to continue running in a minimized window plane thereby allowing users of the Instant Messaging app do other things while the video is running.
In essence, the video page does not take up your whole full screen while its on and you can switch to other apps and reply other messages while you enjoy your WhatsApp video call in the small window panel hanging from wherever on your display.
It is most important to note that this feature is only available to Android OS 8 Oreo users alone.
