WhatsApp Beta for Android phones has been updated with a function that warns the recipient of media sent in chat. From now on, besides the photo at the top, the app will show the name of the contact that receives the material in the bottom corner of the screen. The goal is to reduce the chance of mistakes when sharing photos, videos and GIFs.

Revealed by the site WABetaInfo, the news came in the app's testing mode 2.19.173, which users can join or leave through Google Play. There is still no forecast for the feature to reach stable version. It is noteworthy that it already exists in WhatsApp for iPhone (iOS), with the difference that the recipient's name appears on the right side.

Still according to WABetaInfoMessenger 2.19.177 begins testing a change in the operation of Picture-in-Picture mode. Available in the stable release since December 2018, the feature should be enhanced with the ability to continue watching video in floating window even when exiting WhatsApp and opening other apps.
PiP mode works with videos hosted on YouTube, Instagram, and other sites for now, in the case of files uploaded directly to WhatsApp chat. Currently, floating view is only available within the conversation where the link was shared.
