WhatsApp beta update 2.19.177 adds PiP feature! [APK download]

If you miss the PiP feature on WhatsApp, then today is your good day.

It’s been said that the world’s most popular messenger app is finally getting the PiP feature (already available on WhatsApp Web), that will allow users to continue to watch, let’s say a YouTube video, even when outside the app in the pop-up window. Just press the home button after playing a video to hump to the home screen (and any app thereafter) and the video will continue to play in a pop-up window.

You will also be able to use the PiP to continue to watch the video and jump to another chat within WhatsApp. This is cool! It’s going to be easily the best features of WhatsApp once it’s available for the stable version as well.

The well-known channel on WhatsApp gossip, WABetaInfo, reported today that the PiP feature is finally available in the latest beta update version 2.19.177. Hit up the Play Store app to download the latest beta version of the WhatsApp, 2.19.177.

But if you are not subscribed to beta program, Play Store won’t help you, in which case download the APK from below.

Now, let’s hope WhatsApp is quick to roll out the fingerprint feature as well, in a way we imagine it to be super useful.
