Whatsapp recently added a new feature of Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode. This feature allows users to talk on video calls while browsing an app or using other services on their iPhone.
Previously, if a WhatsApp user wanted to use another app during a video call, he or she had to exit the call and end the conversation. With the help of PiP support, users can simply tap the home button during a call and the video will continue to play in a small window on their screen. After that users can switch to other apps or facilities while still seeing and listening to their conversations.
