The mobile Viber app today received an interesting update that enables a special mode for enjoying YouTube clips without having to leave the app, which resembles iOS 9′ picture in picture feature on iPad. As part of Viber versions 6.8.2 for iOS, tapping a YouTube URL sent or received in a conversation now brings up a floating overlay that can be moved around so that you can enjoy the video in minimized view while you do other things within the app.
Aside from minimized view, you can also play YouTube clips right in your chats, inline.
Before today’s update, tapping a YouTube link would take you to its webpage in Safari or on the mobile YouTube app. The floating video player features the Play/Pause controls along with the buttons for closing the player or taking it fullscreen.
