That means you will no longer need to leave WhatsApp whenever someone sends you a link from YouTube, Facebook or any of the aforementioned sites. You simply click on the link, and a video player will open up and start playing the video.
The PiP feature was first availed on the mobile app WhatsApp, and now it is being availed on its desktop client. The links you receive will simply open as video window hovering over the chat window. Thus saving you the trouble and time to juggle between WhatsApp and whichever platform the video whose link you have been sent is hosted.
