WhatsApp won the native display of videos posted on Facebook and Instagram. Initially available in the iPhone version (iOS), the feature plays the videos received within the chat, without the need to use an external application. Therefore, access is easier. During video playback, participants continue to send messages, as the floating video does not prevent writing texts.
The video integration was launched in January with YouTube videos, also exclusively on the Apple system. Now, with the three aggregated platforms, users can attach the media file to the conversations using links copied from the source apps of each video.
