WhatsApp beta version 2.17.265 for Android comes with a new feature, one that is enabled by default for those devices that are running the Android O Developer Preview.
The feature would let you minimize the video call window into a smaller window so you can keep your video conversation going while answering another WhatsApp conversation.

Were not sure if the small window with the video chat is a floating window that can be dragged around, nor do we know if the video conference would continue even after minimizing WhatsApp. If so, this would be one of the first video calling apps to allow this type of multi-tasking on a smartphone platform.
Are you an avid WhatsApp user who would love the idea of a pop-out video calling feature?
