After few month of rolling out of picture-in-picture (PIP) mode to mobile devices across the world, WhatsApp is planning to roll out its picture-in-picture (PIP) mode to Web clients and desktop app. That lets users watch videos in a separate pop-up screen that includes controls such as a play/ pause button, volume controller, and timeline slider A new icon apparently enables the Picture-in-Picture video content in a new screen to let you continue your chat or any other work on the existing screen.

The reported WhatsApp Web update includes a ‘Reply Privately’ option that allows you to communicate with one of your group members privately in response to a message shared by the group member in the group. As per WABetaInfo screenshot, the Reply privately option will appear as an icon next to the existing ‘Reply’ and ‘Forward’ options on the WhatsApp interface.
