Facebook-owned popular messaging platform saw a lot of new changes to the platform in the year 2017 and looks like the company is all set to bring a new useful feature to it’s messaging app. Whatsapp has recently updated its iOS app adding a new functionality which will enable Whatsapp to play youtube videos within the app.
This new update brings the app version to 2.17.81, which is live on the app store. The new feature is currently disabled by WhatsApp and will take you to youtube app for playing the video. Whatsapp will soon enable this feature by making changes on the server.
This means you don’t need a new update for this to work and it will get automatically enabled in the WhatsApp 2.17.81 and above. There is no mention of this feature in the Android Beta but we can expect an update soon for the android users too.
