WhatsApp users will be able to share videos and music during a conversation in the messenger.

Signs that such a feature will appear were seen in the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android As discovered by WABetaInfo, the new feature will allow participants in a video call to listen to music played on one of the devices. It will also be possible to watch videos together.

Shared listening or viewing will only work when users have screen-shared during a video call. This will not work during normal audio calls.

The feature is currently in development, so even users testing the latest beta versions of the messenger can still try it out. Also, the tracker previously recorded a similar function in versions of the messenger for iOS, so all users will probably receive the corresponding update later. It is not yet clear which music and video apps WhatsApp will support with the new feature.

Interestingly, Apple introduced something similar back in 2021. Its SharePlay feature in the FaceTime video calling app, which only works with Apple devices, allows users to watch videos and listen to music from selected apps with their callers.
