In order to watch videos on WhatsApp, you first had to download them. However, that won’t be the case anymore. In the new update, a new feature has been introduced that will allows you to stream videos.
This is a step in the right direction and will save you a whole lot of time. Longer videos were almost impossible to watch previously, but with this new update, every video has become watchable.
Due to download requirement, a lot of people stopped sharing pictures and videos through WhatsApp and the developers realized that. This forced them to introduce streaming and that seems to working rather well.
This new feature has started to roll out in some countries, and will be made available to users all over the globe real soon.
