WhatsApp has rolled out two new features – support for picture-in-picture and ability to have text as a status message. The first feature Picture-to-Picture allows users to resize the video calling window and move it around should they want to also text a friend or do something else. Which is available to Android Oreo Users only.

The second feature offers WhatsApp users the ability to have text-only updates as their status. Prior to this, users were only allowed to put their pictures and video as status updates, and have text overlay as they saw fit. The new version of stable WhatsApp build (on Android, it’s v2.17.323; on iOS, it’s 2.17.52) lets users choose the background colour and add the text. These text-only statuses also have just up to 24 hours of visibility.
