Whatsapp Set To Roll Out New Updates - PIP mode ,Private Replies and more


The rate at which updates are rolling out to Whatsapp these days are quite impressive I must say and there's no sign of it stopping anytime soon.

According to some reports I saw on twitter, a new update is coming to WhatsApp Web/desktop version that will allow you reply to a group message privately and also use the PiP features. Unfortunately this mode is only available for Android Oreo Devices (for the mobile version)

According to Wabetainfo, this update will be available for WhatsApp Web/Desktop version soon. At the moment, it's undergoing development. It's expected that users of the web version will see this new feature in the near future, hopefully in 2018.


Private Replies: This feature allows you reply to messages sent on groups privately.

There will be a new option called “Reply privately”: when selected, WhatsApp will automatically open the chat with the contact to send a message. The sent message will quote the group message.

Picture in Picture Feature: The new update, when rolled out, will allow you to watch sent and received videos in a new separated window: this is called the PiP feature!

A new icon will be available when you’re watching the video:

When the user selects this option, the picture in picture will be started with the selected video, presenting a new window with a very nice UI.

Hopefully, it will be rolled out n the first quarter of 2018.
