      According to Twitter account @WABetaInfo WhatsApp is about to release a new feature whereby YouTube videos will play directly within the chat window, rather than switching you to the player. WhatsApp has fixed one of the annoying parts of using the Messenger app by allowing this as part of its latest iOS update. When users tap on a YouTube link in a chat they no longer have to leave the app in order to watch it. Instead the video appears with a floating window on the screen so users can message friends and watch videos simultaneously.
