WhatsApp now supports in-line Instagram and Facebook videos

After Messenger and Whatsapp, Facebook spotted testing Instagram payments feature to take on rival Snapchat
Now, with the new feature, users can simply select what they want and make a payment from within the app.
Earlier in March, Instagram has announced, "we'll roll out the ability to book a service with a business directly from their profile later this year", but there wasn't any words regarding this new in-app payment feature.

Several people were taken to the hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening. Details are still limited, and more information will be provided when it becomes available .
Although the feature is rolling out to all iOS users, there's no sign of it rolling out for Android users, but we'll keep you posted. This ensures that the videos play even if the users have logged out of the respective app. WhatsApp already offers similar support to play YouTube videos. After all, Instagram and Facebook do heavily rely on the feature and it makes sense that it caters to a wider audience as well. This allows iPhone users to watch Facebook and Instagram videos right inside the app. Inclusion of YouTube within the framework makes sense considering that it happens to be the biggest repository of online videos in the world. Or has the messaging app been mired by the stench of the Cambridge Analytica story? At the time of acquisition in 2014, WhatsApp had just 450 million monthly active users and 315 million daily active users and now WhatsApp has more than 1.5 billion users and these users are sharing more than 60 billion messages every day. A maximum of four people can do video and voice calls at once. There is a chance that you might not be able to see, or use it, for a good few days. Also, group admins can now select who can change the group's subject, icon and description. Similarly, with payments feature coming to Instagram, users will now be able to shop without having to leave the app. However, in case Instagram decides to fully expand its in-app payments feature soon, Snapchat may see its growth numbers fall further in the future. When it was introduced in October 2017, users reported some problems with the feature that included the accidental recipients seeing a "This message was deleted" notification when they opened the message. During the F8 conference, Zuckerberg also revealed that 450 million people are using WhatsApp's status feature worldwide.
