WhatsApp iOS users can text, view videos simultaneously

Whatsapp

The new WhatsApp v2.17.81 app for iPhone is now available to download via the App Store, and details the changes in the What's New section. The feature let users lock the button while recording the message. "When recording a Voice Message, just swipe up to lock recording so you can continue to record without keeping your finger down". However, the option is disabled now and expected to go online in few days.

However, there are some caveats, like you can not view photo/video while recording a locked voice message.

WhatsApp has over 1.2 billion monthly active users worldwide. This would be annoying if the message was long or you wanted to do something else while the message was being recorded. If you are an iPhone or iPad user, all you need to do is to update your WhatsApp to the latest version on iTunes.

During this week, YouTube has also removed ads from another 2 million videos and 50,000 channels to stop those channels from getting profit from disturbing content. YouTube's controversy over violent, predatory videos impersonating as videos for children started about a month ago. However, the voice message recording lock is there tipping that the YouTube feature might have to be enabled with a server side switch.

YouTube Go also lets a user choose the quality of video to be downloaded.

The notification further said, "When you receive a link to a YouTube video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp".

Facebook-owned messaging application WhatsApp has been updating its features to facilitate the users and enhance their experience.

Well, with locked recordings, a new lock icon will appear when you tap the mic button to record voice message. Now, it will open in a pop-up window within WhatsApp, on the lines of the picture-in-picture mode available on devices running the latest Oreo version (8.1) of Android.
