PiP video calling means, you will be able to minimize your video calling window to a corner and you can continue to message or access other options in the app. This feature is now available in the beta build 2.17.265 for the Android O devices. So it could be an Android O exclusive feature.
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. We don’t have any idea whether we can drag the minimized window to anywhere on the screen. However, it looks promising and future ready. It will help you save time and will help you to do multiple actions while on video calling. The feature is expected to be unveiled soon.
