New Whatsapp UI for iPad in Development, Launches In-line Youtube Playback

YouTube faces new advertiser exodus

This feature is only for the iOS users at the moment and will soon be launching for Android versions as well. The updated v2.17.81 version of the application will allow people to access these features.

The information confirms from a Twitter channel which is known for bringing the best Whatsapp updates even before an official announcement is made.

YouTube Go also lets a user choose the quality of video to be downloaded. WhatsApp was extensively working on this idea and investigating ways to make watching YouTube videos within its chat-app.

With the help of an API, the videos will now directly play inside Whatsapp interface making it easy to continue the conversation. It lacks the feature where a user can double tap towards the right to fast forward and double tap towards the left to rewind, like in the original app. YouTube Go also lacks the subscription tab where users could view all the videos from the channels they have subscribed to. Besides, phones that have limited RAM and older processors may not be powerful enough to handle multiple actions at once and will painfully slow down annoying most users to the core. "With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat", read the Apple App Store description.


WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging firm, after testing some of its features for a brief time, has started rolling it out on iOS devices. This latest update also lets you record long audio messages. Among 1.2 billion users worldwide, WhatsApp has over 200 million active users in India monthly.

Explaining this feature, WhatsApp notes, "Want to easily record long Voice Messages?" This would be annoying if the message was long or you wanted to do something else while the message was being recorded.

Moreover, WhatsApp is reportedly planning to introduce a new button which will allow users to change a voice call into a video call without ending the ongoing voice call.
