All you need to do is update your WhatsApp version to the 2.18.11 update on Apple App Store, that brings bug fixes and general improvements, in order to remotely receive the activation of this feature.
Once WhatsApp is updated, you will be able to watch YouTube videos whenever someone sends you a YouTube link. You no longer will have to move out of the WhatsApp messenger to watch it.
To view a YouTube video on WhatsApp, users simply have to share or receive the URL in a chat and they will see the play button in a bubble.

Earlier, when users clicked on the link, the YouTube video would open in YouTube app installed on the smartphones.
“Fortunately, WhatsApp has worked to allow videos not to be stopped when the user changes the chat,” WABetaInfo said.
The update is yet to come to Android and Windows users.
WhatsApp has over 200 million monthly active users in India and 1.2 billion users worldwide. (IANS)
