Similar to YouTube’s playback controls, WhatsApp is now testing a new feature that will give users more control over how videos play within the app.

Users can now move forward and backward by 10 seconds with the new video playback settings, according to WABetaInfo, a website that keeps track of all the newest changes on WhatsApp. The new buttons have an appearance similar of YouTube’s.

The source also mentions that WhatsApp for Android 2.23.24 beta testers are the only ones with access to the new controls for video playback. In further app updates, they will, however, be made available to all users. The official release date is not mentioned.

The Alternate Profile function will be incorporated into users’ privacy settings for their profile photos, according to WABetaInfo. Users will be able to hide their primary profile information from other users and establish unique profile photo and name for each contacts.
