WhatsApp has started rolling out picture-in-picture (PIP) feature to video calls on iOS that will allow iPhone users to multitask on their smartphones on a video call. Unlike WhatsApp for Android, which has always supported multi-tasking, WhatsApp for iOS never allowed the user to perform another function while on the video call without pausing the user’s video stream.
iPhone users can now use the picture-in-picture (PIP) function to minimize WhatsApp and continue their video call while performing another task on their smartphones.
The announcement was made via the release notes for the latest stable version on the App Store. “With support for iOS Picture-in-Picture (PIP), you can multitask during a WhatsApp call without your video being paused.” said the changelog.
It is worth nothing that PIP support has been available on the iPhone since the release of iOS 14 back in 2020, however, third-party apps have been slow to adopt the new feature on the platform compared to their Android counterparts.
Furthermore, the update also adds support for captions while sending documents on WhatsApp for iOS, a feature that was limited to images and videos. Moreover, the users have been given the ability to add longer subjects and descriptions in group chats with the latest version of WhatsApp for iOS.
