WhatsApp, the popular messaging platform, has released a new update for its iPhone app, which brings a much-awaited feature to the app. The app’s latest version 23.3.77, which is now available on the App Store, brings Picture-in-Picture support to WhatsApp’s video calls. This means that users can multitask during video calls, without having to worry about their video call getting paused.
Picture-in-picture support was first announced by WhatsApp in December last year and was made available to WhatsApp Beta users. But starting today, all iPhone users will be able to take advantage of the feature. The PiP feature works in a similar way to other apps like FaceTime call. When a user minimizes the app during a video call, the video automatically appears in a small floating window that overlays other apps.
This new update also includes a few other exciting features. iPhone users can now add captions when sending documents and take advantage of long descriptions for groups and custom avatars. To create personalized avatars, you should go to Settings and then tap on Avatar to get started.

It is worth mentioning that WhatsApp is testing a new feature that transcribes audio messages into text. While this feature is currently available exclusively to WhatsApp Beta users, it is unclear when it will become available to the public.
