As per a report by WABetaInfo, the upcoming WhatsApp feature was spotted on the latest iOS beta version of the app. The report notes that Netflix trailers can be played directly within WhatsApp.

WhatsApp Netflix Playback Feature

Going by the report, if a user shares a trailer of a Netflix video, be it is a show or movie, an iOS user will be able to play it in PiP mode. If you use an iPhone, then you need not click on the link to go to the Netflix app and watch the shared video with this feature.

Well, this feature is something similar to what the instant messaging platform does for YouTube, Instagram and Facebook videos. This feature is currently under testing on iOS. Those iPhone users who are a part of the beta program of WhatsApp can update to the latest version of the app to get this Netflix video playback feature.

Other New WhatsApp Features

WhatsApp is hitting the headlines continuously for several new features. The company has been long working on bringing the dark mode to its users. The iOS version of the app is likely to get two dark themes for the users to choose from. One will include very dark colors for the table and cell background while the other will use soft dark colors for the same.

Also, the fingerprint authentication feature that was rolled out for beta users has now been rolled out for the stable version of the Android app. This feature was initially rolled out for the iOS users.


What We Think

As of now, there is no word regarding when WhatsApp will roll out the same Netflix video playback in PiP mode on Android. And, we can expect a similar capability for other video streaming platforms including Amazon Prime, Hotstar and others.
