WhatsApp Tests Picture-in-Picture Mode for Video Calling

WhatsApp already lets you watch a YouTube video in PiP mode and now this functionality might be available for video calls on the platform.

The Meta-owned messaging app is testing adding the picture-in-picture (PiP) mode for its iOS app.

WhatsApp for iOS beta version There’s no word on availability for Android.

WhatsApp video calls while checking out other apps, much like you can do while watching YouTube videos in the PiP mode.

This will make multitasking easier.

Check out the screenshot below to see how this may function.

It is said that this can also hide your video call view if you want for the time being.

However, the report suggests that the feature presently requires at least iOS 16.

This might get sorted once the feature goes stable. As of now, it is available for some beta users.
