Is WhatsApp getting in-app YouTube support?


WhatsApp may be currently testing a new feature that could save a few headaches. Currently, when you’re chatting with someone and you receive a link to a YouTube video, the YouTube app will open up when you tap on it. This means you then have to navigate back to WhatsApp to continue the conversation.

WhatsApp may be looking to solve this problem as it’s reportedly testing a new feature that allows you to watch YouTube videos in the chat window. When you tap on a link, the video will show up on your screen in a small window placed on top of the conversation you’re having.

Apparently, you can also expand the video to full screen, or hide it momentarily, to get a better view of the chat window. However, the video will disappear as soon as you open up a different chat.

The news arrives via WABetaInfo, which claims that WhatsApp is currently testing the feature with a small number of users on iOS devices. We can’t verify this info at this point, but if it’s true, we expect that it would make its way to Android also.

Would you like to see this feature on the Android version of WhatsApp? Let us know in the comment section below.
