WhatsApp for the iPhone: video chats get picture-in-picture function
A picture-in-picture feature in which the other person is at a video call in a small window, WhatsApp has been offering for a long time. What’s new is that one can now use other apps during the WhatsApp call, “without stopping your video”, as WhatsApp writes in the App Store. Previously, you had to stay on Messenger, otherwise the video call would end.
In addition, WhatsApp offers in version 3/23/77 for the iPhone more useful innovations. For example, captions can be added when documents are sent, and longer titles and descriptions are possible for groups. In addition, WhatsApp users can use avatars as stickers and profile pictures.
According to WhatsApp, the functions will be introduced “over the next few weeks”.
