Dhansu feature launched for WhatsApp iOS users, video calls can be made with other apps without interruption

WhatsApp Picture-in-Picture video calls on iOS: WhatsApp is finally rolling out picture-in-picture mode for video calls on iOS. The feature debuted on Android a long time ago, but it took WhatsApp a while to bring it to the iPhone, where navigating to the home screen or any other app would pause the video call.

With PiP mode, WhatsApp users on iOS will be able to use other apps during a video call. The latest update for WhatsApp for iOS takes the version up to 23.3.77 and is now available on the App Store.

Can also use other apps

The changelog of the update reads that “with support for iOS Picture in Picture (PiP), users can multitask during WhatsApp calls without pausing the video.” It is clear that users can browse the internet and scroll through their Instagram feed while WhatsApp calling. Also check email without fear of pausing for video feed.

Apple rolled out picture-in-picture mode in 2020 as a part of iOS 14, while Android was released in 2017 with the rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo.

Third-party apps are lagging behind to support the feature on iOS. YouTube enabled PiP mode for its iOS app almost two years after the feature was introduced (WhatsApp Picture-in-Picture video calls on iOS) and WhatsApp took almost three years.

WhatsApp introduced many features in the last few weeks

WhatsApp has also introduced many new features in the last few weeks. Among them are the ability to send high-quality photos and videos, forward captions with photos, share up to 100 photos or videos at once, and create avatars and send them to contacts and set them as your profile photo.

The Meta-owned company is also planning to expand the features of its business app called WhatsApp Business. According to a report, the company is working on adding a community feature to the WhatsApp Business app.
