WhatsApp is introducing a new feature to improve video watching experience on its platform: users no longer require downloading a video before watching it!

Just like YouTube and other streaming services, the video can now be streamed as it being downloaded, reported Mashable.

WhatsApp video call feature now available in Pakistan

The new feature is currently available for beta version 2.16.365 for Android users only, but other platforms are expected to get the update soon.

This is the second major update WhatsApp has introduced this month.

The Facebook-owned messaging platform also rolled out a video call feature last week, and has been aggressively adding new features and testing others lately.
