WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature for iOS users wherein a user can play YouTube videos right within the app, while continuing to chat. And now that it is finally possible, the iPhone users will have to download the latest version v2.18.11 of WhatsApp for iPhone from the App Store to get the new YouTube PiP (Picture-in-Picture) support feature. Please go to the Google Play Store to download the latest version. The company has over 200 million active users in India and 1.2 billion active users in the world.

Xiaomi has acknowledged that some of its smartphone users were affected by a bug that caused WhatsApp to malfunction, showing an "obsolete" error notification. Users have claimed that they are getting an error message saying "This version of WhatsApp became Obsolete". To know more about this issue, our team has approached WhatsApp team, and they told us it is a third party issue, not an error with WhatsApp.

The messaging app has been planning to launch it for some time now and made watching video more convenient for iOS users.

Users who are still facing the issue are advised to update WhatsApp on their smartphones. The company has asked users to update the app to fix the obsolete issue. The video continues to play even when a user switches to another chat. Back then, reports pointed out that the issue is faced only by Xiaomi users.
