The current version of the app will open the YouTube app or a web browser if the official portal is not installed.
The Facebook-owned chat app further brings several new updates for iOS users. Now we have no use if the feature will also be coming to Android and Windows Phone platforms, but this might change in the future since the Youtube playback feature is in its early developments. WhatsApp to Introduce In App YouTube Playback for Videos Soon.
We recently heard that WhatsApp had started to support more file types and now it looks like more features are coming to the messaging app. You can either pinch the video in the PIP mode to expand or open it in a different section of the app to watch the video in the full-screen mode. The update is available only on the 2.17.40 beta version of WhatsApp for iOS and there is no word on when the company will release a similar update for the Android operating system. As playing YouTube videos outside the app has been an annoyance for so long, we will eagerly wait to see the feature roll out widely.

Despite the hangover, it did not take long for the record eight-times Wimbledon men's singles champion to get into his stride. In a post-match press conference, when asked who she would prefer to dance with at the dinner, Muguruza said: "Roger".
Apart from that, Whatsapp will now not compress pictures sent to you by friends and acquaintances. This means you then have to navigate back to WhatsApp to continue the conversation.
WhatsApp may be now testing a new feature that could save a few headaches. At the moment, there is no information provided as to when these features will make its way to Android.
