Whatsapp Gets New Feature; Now Open Facebook And Instagram Videos On Whatsapp

Other than sharing photos and videos, Instagram can do nearly everything Facebook and WhatsApp can do.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp has been rolling out regular updates for the app at a steady pace. The messenger app is expected to have several exclusive features for Apple customers. The ability to watch YouTube videos within WhatsApp was launched sometime back, and WhatsApp is now including the same functionality to watch Facebook and Instagram videos.

Jan Koum, one of the co-founders of WhatsApp has finally left his position on 30 April 2018 amidst rumours of not agreeing with the upcoming changes that Facebook was planning for the app.

In addition, the group administrator functions have also been updated in the latest version of the app. You may shift the movie bubble throughout the screen too, as it is sold with play/pause, shut, and full-screen buttons, just the same as YouTube's PiP movie bubble. Users can play and pause the video as well.

A picture in picture feature also let users continue their conversations while a smaller version of the video plays in the background.

Another feature of the update involves the group administrator position. The update empowers the group admins to take away the admin rights from other participants. This can be done by heading over to "Group Settings" under the "Group Info" section. They will automatically be directed to the chat. Zuckerberg revealed that up to four people could participate in a video conference at the same time. "Stickers are also coming to WhatsApp soon".

Koum's leaving though, comes on the heels of several changes that Facebook seems to be making to WhatsApp. But it is time for me to move on. He stated that he would be turning his attention to his hobbies.

It has also been reported by general public that Koum made his decision to leave Facebook before the scandal of the Cambridge Analytica revelations. With the new feature, users will be able to book services from a limited number of businesses on the platform. Eventually, they turned to social media where they were able to identify the suspect through photograph enhancement correctly. Using this feature, an Instagram subscriber can pay for various services/products from within the application. The program allowed users an hour, 8 minutes, and 16 seconds to delete a message that they accidentally sent to other people. Even the company spokesperson confirmed it that the feature is live for a set of users.
