Latest WhatsApp Adds Support for In-Line Facebook and Instagram Video Playback

As per the new payment application, which is now displayed in the login of specific users, one can enter payment details into the app along with a PIN for more secured access.

Instagram has added in-app payments option that lets you make direct payments without leaving the app.

The privacy and user data had always been 2 points of contention between the WhatsApp founders and Facebook with the latter always pushing for easier access to the over 1 billion users of the app.

Even the changelog also claims the characteristic supports PiP (picure in picture style) so you may still browse through whats app, speak along with unique people, and the video will probably still continue to play in an movie bubble on top of the app. The iPhone users can now update their app and see if this feature is working for them.

Now it should ask you to verify your number; WhatsApp will send a text from the registered WhatsApp number so you should be having that number (Number used to your WhatsApp account) active on that phone. However, in case Instagram decides to fully expand its in-app payments feature soon, Snapchat may see its growth numbers fall further in the future.
