When we start a video call on Android Nougat and below and tap back, the call goes into the background. Moreover, the video gets paused and it becomes audio call and we go back to our text conversation and can do other stuff on our phone. In case of Android O, when we tap back, the video shrinks down to a floating window and we can continue your call with video. Meanwhile, we can also do other stuff like texting and using the app normally.

We can place the video window anywhere on screen. It enlarges momentarily when we tap on it then shrinks back to its normal size. And if we swipe it down, it gets dismissed. Then the call goes in the background and pauses video like on Nougat and below.

The only limitation with this app is that, it will only run on Android O. When Android O will be available for all, this new feature will be rolled out. Moreover, If you have got the Android O Dev Preview, you should be able to use this feature now.

In the recent update, WhatsApp has introduced its most awaited feature for its users. Now WhatsApp Users can Share any File Type. Earlier users can only send audio, video files, documents, images and GIFs. But now users can send any file type using whatsApp.
