According to the screenshot above provided by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp plans to introduce a feature that allows users to view videos while simultaneously browsing other conversations or sections of the app in a future update. Currently, picture-in-picture mode, which displays videos on top of content, is only available for YouTube and Instagram videos shared on WhatsApp. This is not the case for those downloaded directly. This new feature will enhance users’ experience by enabling them to use picture-in-picture mode when viewing videos shared by their contacts.

It should be noted that the functionality is currently limited to viewing videos within WhatsApp. Indeed, it does not yet allow you to maintain picture-in-picture mode when switching from one application to another. However, an advanced version could be envisaged in the future to overcome this constraint. It would offer the possibility of continuing to view videos in picture-in-picture mode even when switching between different applications.

The feature is still under development. It is available in the latest WhatsApp beta update for iOS It could be weeks, or even months, before it is rolled out to all users. So you’ll have to be patient until then.
