WhatsApp will support YouTube in the app!

WhatsApp

Clicking on the link launches the YouTube app to play the video. Soon WhatsApp will allow users to watch YouTube videos directly from the chat window.

WhatsApp is apparently testing out support for Google's YouTube within the app, at the moment when you click a link to YouTube it takes you out of the WhatsApp app. This may change in future (seen that, as abovementioned, the feature is still under development, so in this case all can change), supporting also iPhone 5, iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, but don't count on it so much.

Slowly but surely, WhatsApp is transforming from the simplest messaging tool on the block into a feature-rich app that can go toe-to-toe with the best of 'em.

To save users time, WhatsApp team is testing new In App YouTube playback function.

The support for YouTube video playback is discovered by WABetaInfo.

WhatsApp keep on rolling out new features on and off.

You can pinch on the Picture in Picture mode in order to expand it, or you can open the video in a new WhatsApp section to view it in full screen mode.

What is one of the most annoying features that you have encountered while using WhatsApp? It is available for iPhone Beta testers. As playing YouTube videos outside the app has been an annoyance for so long, we will eagerly wait to see the feature roll out widely. Apart from the pinned chat feature, the app has introduced support for all file types and the ability to delete multiple photos on its iOS app. Hope these interesting features make it to Android OS soon.
