WhatsApp is adding several new features to what is arguably the very popular instant messaging app for smartphones and is still constantly making efforts to improve the chat experience for its millions of users.
According to reports, Whatsapp now working on the feature of accessing the videos directly from the notifications. With this feature, users will not need to open an app to view the videos on the Whatsapp app and they will be able to play videos directly from the notifications. Currently, notifications only come up on the screen with the name of the person and a short preview of the top of their message.
