In a new update, Facebook owned WhatsApp has added a new feature that supports playing Instagram and Facebook videos within the app.
How does it work?
When contacts send you Facebook and Instagram videos, you can watch them inside WhatsApp without having to exit your current conversation thread to load the video on a separate app(Facebook, Instagram or your browser). Previously, the app already allowed users to play YouTube videos within the conversation.
These new functionality is part of the latest iOS update WhatsApp released today, which means it’s only available for iOS users now, Android users can wait for theirs’ to come later.
