Also, you can browse through your messages inside chat as well, by hiding the video on the side. But once you change the chat you won’t be able to continue watching it.

Presently the feature is just available in ios phones and would take time before it’s available for both ios and android phones. If in this test phase they are not able to find any kind of error or bug problems then it would be soon available in market.
