This feature is also available on both iOS and Android platform. WhatsApp did the test-in-picture feature's testing on Android itself at the beginning of the year.

Talking about the new WhatsApp features, the picture-in-picture basically comes in handy when you want to do multiple things at the same time.

The instant messaging app has been testing the picture-in-picture for video calls since July.

WhatsApp finally rolled out its picture-in-picture feature for video calls. Recently, the company announced tools for business customers who are getting verified profiles on the service. This new feature is said to be a paid facility to generate some revenue. Ever since then, many mobile applications have brought this popular feature of PiP mode on their platforms. This PiP mode or picture in picture mode will allow the user to multitask while doing the video call. According to WhatsApp, the text-based status feature will let users update to their contacts in a more fun, personal way. Similarly, users will be able to go back to home screen or any other app by tapping the back button during the call on the main chat screen. However, you could have had a text overlay if you wanted to write something.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has mounted two new features- support for picture-in-picture and posting text-only updates to your status- on its Android and iPhone clients in order to improvise its functionality for its huge bulk of users.

These text-only statuses will appear only for 24 hours like the stories feature in Instagram.

Even though Whatsapp has rolled out the update globally for all android versions, only Android v8.0 users can be actually eligible to use it. Though the features started to roll out slowly in August but are now generally available on all the stable builds.
