The YouTube Go app also allows you to download your favorite videos from the website to your phone's storage and then share it with your friends via Bluetooth or wifi-direct.

He is also fanatical about football which makes it all the more unusual that he should support Stockport County. Now WhatsApp users can swipe up to lock recording.

To avail this feature, Update your WhatsApp to version 2.17.81. However, the voice message recording lock is there tipping that the YouTube feature might have to be enabled with a server side switch.

Meanwhile, reports are also such that WhatsApps is preparing to bring another feature with which a user will be able to switch between voice and video calls simultaneously. The recent update of WhatsApp has also allowed group administrators to exercise more control over their chat groups, by limiting group chat feature to certain group member and preventing other administrators from deleting the group creator.

If you enter into your Apple itunes, a notification has been circulated by WhatsApp saying, "Want to easily record long Voice Messages?" Many have recieved the voice recording feature but still haven't recieved the YouTube feature. "With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat", reads the App Store description.

Reportedly, the application is now testing another feature which will allow the users to switch from voice to video call quickly while the call is still in progress without stopping the conversation.
