With new YouTube support, iOS users can tap the YouTube link to open YouTube videos in the app. WabetaINfo has introduced this feature on WhatsApp First seen When we tested this feature, we noticed that instead of the YouTube app it would now appear as a small bubble in the video app. This feature has buttons for play / pause, close and fullscreen. Earlier, when users clicked on a link to a YouTube video, the video opens in a pre-installed YouTube app on the smartphone. Users will also have the option to reduce and increase the size of the video bubble. These bubbles can be moved anywhere on the screen. However, when we remove the video window, it is moved to the top or bottom of the screen.
The new WhatsApp for the iPhone has a new feature that allows you to play YouTube even after exiting video chat. This video continues to play while switching from one chat to another. To play YouTube videos on WhatsApp, tap on the chat URL and you’ll see a video bubble.
The special thing is that the YouTube bubble appears only when the user receives a video. So, if a user shares a video with a contact, it will not be visible in the video app.
It is worth noting that the YouTube video streaming feature is currently only available for the WhatsApp iOS app. It is hoped that the update will be released soon for Android users.
