WaBetaInfo reported on Saturday that Meta-owned WhatsApp, which is always improving the app’s usability for users, has unveiled a new feature for iOS users.
The App Store now offers the latest stable version with the build number 23.3.77. All users of the messaging app can now make video calls in picture-in-picture mode.
Although WhatsApp has officially announced the functionality, some users are still unable to utilize it. According to the changelog on the App Store, they will get the feature over the next few weeks.
Users will be able to multitask while on a WhatsApp call thanks to this new functionality without having their video halted.
The WhatsApp beta for iOS 220.127.116.11 update also brought longer group subjects and descriptions, which make it easier to describe your groups, according to the app tracking website. “In addition, this update enables you to use some other features: the ability to attach a caption to your documents and longer group subjects and descriptions,” it added.
WhatsApp previously disclosed that it is developing a feature for the business community.
In a future version, it will add communities to the WhatsApp Business app, making it simpler to manage connected groups collectively.
Users of the commercial edition of the app will be able to build, administer, and use communities through this app. This app is still being developed, thus it has not yet been made available to beta testers.
According to the app tracking website, “Users will be able to browse a list of all the communities they previously formed and joined, including all of their subgroups and community announcement groups, when they access ‘Communities’ right within this menu.
Also, this will enable companies to build a new community in this area much like they can on the client app.
This feature will be announced later.
