Watch videos on WhatsApp in a floating window

At the beginning of the year, the developers of the app introduced a new and especially useful feature that allowed us to watch YouTube videos directly in the app. When you received a YouTube link, you no longer had to leave WhatsApp to watch the video. Not only that but also the videos were opened in a floating window inside the app, which we could slide on the screen to continue chatting or reading messages at the same time. Now, this also applies to Facebook and Instagram.

According to the last update of the app, if we receive a Facebook or Instagram link that is a video, we can see it directly in the app. When receiving or sending the video link, a preview will appear and if we open it, it will be played in a floating window within WhatsApp. While playing you can leave the chat or continue writing and be reading messages without stopping playback.

On the other hand, WhatsApp 2.18.15 also incorporates improvements for group administrators. These improvements are the first option to discard other administrators of a group from the group information window. Second, administrators can choose who can change the description, icon, and subject of a group. This is especially useful for better management of the groups and provides greater control to the administrators of the same.
