WhatsApp is testing a video streaming feature on Android users. It is still unknown when it will reach iOS devices. Currently, users have to download a video before watching it.
The option to save or download the video will remain as in the current version, according to the portal ABC of Spain. The new feature will allow users to watch the videos on the platform while they are being downloaded. It is expected to launch as soon testing ends.
In this way, the popular instant messaging service does not want to lose track of its competitors, since video has become a fundamental tool. Following this trend, WhatsApp has been adding new features to its platform lately. It introduced video calling capability early this month and is also testing a Snapchat Stories like feature, Mashable reported.
