The biggest change is that YouTube videos will now play directly inside the messaging app, in picture-in-picture mode.

To what extent users were affected is likely related to app version, however. WABetaInfo believes any issues could be fixed tonight.

Google's productivity apps, known as G Suite, have received a new update that makes Docs, Sheets and Slides more compatible with iPhone X. The update also now allows content drag-and-drop on iPad.

Users can also resize the video window using a pinch gesture, as well as maximising it to full screen for a better view.

That being said, the YouTube (PiP) feature in WhatsApp is now disabled and according to WABetaInfo the feature may need to be enabled with a server-side switch.

'I will inform you when WhatsApp will enable it from the server, probably tonight'. Another important addition to the app is the so-called Locked Recordings, which should make it easier for iOS users to record a message. However, with the new update, your hands will now be free to perform other things.

'Want to easily record long Voice Messages?

'When recording a Voice Message, just swipe up to lock recording so you can continue to record without keeping your finger down'.

It is not known when it will be available on Android. The fault can be from any end like from the code of the app or can be from the new update of iOS 11. You can now watch videos alongside your friends, rather than having to pause your conversation, possibly getting pulled down a YouTube autoplay hole as more videos get cued up.

'Finally this won't happen anymore.

While updating your YouTube you can see a description posted by the company that the new version is capable of fixing your battery issues and heating problems while surfing YouTube videos.
