This new WhatsApp app update can further improve the video calling experience in the app. According to WABetaInfo , a new WhatsApp beta update submitted via TestFlight on iOS reveals the release of a PiP mode for video calls on the instant messaging service.

Even though support for iOS Picture-in-Picture mode has been there since iOS 14, it seems WhatsApp only uses it if you use the app on at least iOS 16.1. Our app leverages the iOS PiP mode API, enabling users to easily move the floating window and hide it when necessary. This makes multitasking and operating other applications easier.

In this floating window we can see both the image of the other person and our own, in tiny. If you use WhatsApp video calls randomly, it is a very useful addition to be able to do other tasks like checking emails, etc., during a call without losing visibility of the video. As we discussed, it starts in beta first, although hopefully it shouldn’t take long for it to be access to everyone.

That’s all we know about the feature right now.
