WhatsApp adds new features to video calling and status updates

Instant messaging app WhatsApp has added two new features, support for picture-in-picture and posting text-only updates to your status, on Android and iPhone phones. The idea is to improve its use for its huge bulk of users.

The new feature of picture-in-picture allows WhatsApp users to resize the video calling window and move it around if they want to do texting at the same time.

Till now, users were only allowed to put their pictures and videos as status updates but the second feature provides them the ability to have text-only updates as their status. The new feature also allows users to choose the background colour and add the text. The text-only status update will only be visible for 24 hours.

Recently, the company started tools for business customers to get verified profiles on the app service.
