WhatsApp may be currently testing a new feature that could save a few headaches. Currently, when you’re chatting with someone and you receive a link to a YouTube video, the YouTube app will open up when you tap on it. This means you then have to navigate back to WhatsApp to continue the conversation.
WhatsApp may be looking to solve this problem as it’s reportedly testing a new feature that allows you to watch YouTube videos in the chat window. When you tap on a link, the video will show up on your screen in a small window placed on top of the conversation you’re having.
The news arrives via WABetaInfo, which claims that WhatsApp is currently testing the feature with a small number of users on iOS devices. We can’t verify this info at this point, but if it’s true, we expect that it would make its way to Android also.
