If you’ve recently used Apple’s FaceTime, you’ll find that you can freely browse your iPhone during a video call.

If you swipe away, you can stay on FaceTime with a picture-in-picture thumbnail — while you browse other apps.

But that currently doesn’t work when you’re in a WhatsApp video call.

WhatsApp has now revealed that you can use minimized video calls “in the new year”.

In a blog post, WhatsApp confirmed that the feature is now in beta testing.

That means anyone in the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS can try it.

And then it will be rolled out to general WhatsApp users in early 2023.

“While WhatsApp is best known for providing users around the world with private and secure messaging, more and more people are using WhatsApp to connect with voice and video calls,” WhatsApp said in a new blog post.

Other WhatsApp call changes

WhatsApp has also made a number of other changes to voice calls.

The first change is that WhatsApp now allows video calls with 32 people – four times as many as before.

This means that video calls now have the same maximum capacity as voice calls on WhatsApp.

Second, you have the option to notify or mute people on your calls.

Long press on a participant to zoom in on the video or audio feed.

This allows you to either mute them or notify them separately without ending your current call.

The third feature is the ability to share call links with other people.

That means you can easily invite people to a group call in advance – which is great if you’re using it for work or a special occasion.

Fourth, WhatsApp added colorful waveforms.

This should help you see who is talking when their camera is off.

And fifth is the addition of in-call banner notifications.

This will notify you when someone new joins a call you’re on.

If you’d like to join the beta to try out the picture-in-picture mode, follow our guide below.
