WhatsApp is testing a new video design to controls no longer interfere with viewing


The team of the popular messenger WhatsApp has begun testing a redesigned Picture-in-Picture mode. The picture-in-picture mode itself has been available in WhatsApp since 2018. It is useful when someone posts a link to a video from YouTube, Instagram, or Facebook - the user can launch the video in a small pop-up window and continue chatting.


This function has hardly changed all this time. And now, it is finally updated in a fresh test update - you can see the improved function in the beta version of WhatsApp 2.21.22.3 for Android.


The innovation drew attention to the thematic resource WABetainfo. The redesigned Picture-in-Picture mode adds a new control panel to the player. It appears at the bottom of the video and contains controls such as pause/resume, full screen, and close buttons. Previously, these controls appeared directly on the video and often interfered with viewing.
