Last month, WhatsApp had rolled out a new feature allowing YouTube videos directly inside the messaging app. YouTube clip will play inside a small floating window inside your WhatsApp screen. The new feature is available only for iOS users. There is no news as to when the feature will come to Android or Windows users. To view a YouTube video on WhatsApp, users simply have to share or receive the URL in a chat and they will see the play button in a bubble.
Earlier, when users clicked on the link, the YouTube video would open in YouTube app installed on the smartphones.
