This is when iOS users will get picture-in-picture mode for WhatsApp video calls

WhatsApp, owned by Meta, has introduced several new features to improve calling on the platform. These include call links, 32-person calls, color waveforms, ability to message or mute participants, and more. Earlier this month, it was reported that WhatsApp is working on a picture-in-picture mode for video calls. Now the company has confirmed the upcoming feature for Apple iPhone users.

In a blog post, WhatsApp said that picture-in-picture on iOS is currently in beta testing. The feature will be rolled out to users in 2023. It allows users to multitask and use other apps during a WhatsApp video call.

“Now in beta testing and rolling out in 2023, easily multitask during a call with a minimized in-call video screen,” WhatsApp said in the blog post.

According to a WaBetaInfo report, beta testers who have installed the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.24.0.79 update of the TestFlight app will be able to see picture-in-picture mode for video calls. The report said the feature currently works on at least iOS 16.1 and above. So it may be one of the features supported by the update that brings the official support for iOS 16.

In related news, the instant messaging platform is rolling out three new large animated heart emojis for beta testing. According to a report, the instant messaging app has implemented the feature with the WhatsApp beta for Android 2.22.18.8.

WhatsApp is reportedly working on an extreme version of its disappearing feature. According to a report from Mashable, WABetaInfo suggests that the extreme version of disappearing messages will be a message that can only be viewed once before disappearing, for both the sender and the recipient. The new feature can be found in the latest WhatsApp beta for Android, version 2.22.25.20. Reportedly, the recipient cannot share or forward the message once a user sends such a message.
