WhatsApp is perhaps among the top chatting apps globally. With millions of users at its dispense, the app is constantly updating to deliver a quality user experience. The platform recently witnessed the addition of GIF-sharing, photo-albums and expanded file sharing option. Now it appears like the users will also be able to stream YouTube videos within the app itself.

According to a report by Trusted Reviews, the platform is expected to witness the addition of YouTube-viewing. In fact, several iOS beta testers are already using the feature, thereby leading fans to believe that the update might be on its way soon. “The video will be playing picture-in-picture giving users the chance to watch the video in a small window, while doing other things within the app,” the report read.

 

However, there is no confirmation from the side of the company as yet. The app is also apparently testing the ability to edit and delete messages.
