Once they have created their avatar, they can use it as their profile photo. These avatars can also be shared with chats and group chats. WhatsApp customises avatars according to different emotions and reactions and bundles them in a sticker pack.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out picture-in-picture mode for video calls, for all iOS users. With this feature in the new update, users can now multitask during a WhatsApp call without their video being paused. Apple rolled out the Picture-in-Picture Mode with iOS 14, but third-party apps took a lot of time to implement it into their apps. Before WhatsApp, YouTube enabled PiP mode for videos for Premium subscribers last year.
Other than the picture-in-picture mode, the new WhatsApp for iOS update also includes — the ability to attach a caption to the documents, and longer group subjects and descriptions to make it easier to describe the groups.
