WhatsApp Will Let Users Stream Netflix Videos Without Leaving Its Platform Soon

According to WABetaInfo, a beta tester of WhatsApp, the upcoming iOS beta will let users stream Netflix trailers right on WhatsApp

For now, users of WhatsApp can watch any video posted on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook without leaving the site. However, if the video is on a platform other than the ones listed above, users will be directed to the respective apps if you have them on your phone, otherwise, you will have to watch the video on a web browser.

This will no longer be the case for Netflix videos. According to WABetaInfo, a beta tester of WhatsApp, the upcoming iOS beta will let users stream Netflix trailers right on WhatsApp.

So when the feature makes it to reality, if a trailer of a movie or show is shared on WhatsApp, users will see a large thumbnail with a play button, allowing them to see the video in the picture-in-picture format without leaving the site. Users will not need to wait for the Netflix app to load to see the video, similar to how YouTube content is streamed on WhatsApp.

According to the blog, this feature is currently testing on the iOS version of the messaging app. We do not know if the company intends to expand the same ability to the content of other video-streaming services like Amazon Prime Video.

WhatsApp recently made the headlines for being infected with the Pegasus spyware, which is used to surveil over 1,400 lawyers, civil rights activists, and journalists all over the world. Among the victims, over 20 of them come from India. The site has sent warning messages to the victims guiding them on how to protect themselves against similar attempts.

The messaging platform held NSO Group, an Israeli cyber-surveillance company responsible for this incident and has filed a lawsuit against it last week.
