In case you haven't already noticed on your phone, WhatsApp can now play videos from Facebook and Instagram from inside the app – at least on the iOS version.

That means you won't always need to switch to another app to see what someone sends you. With the picture-in-picture option activated, any films shared as links will also continue to play even if you start messaging in another chat.

In the latest iOS version groups, administrators can now also strip other members of their administrator rights in the group settings and determine who can or can’t change a group topic.

The changes will be available with the version 2.18.51 update, but have yet to be included in the Android version. — dpa
