Good news for Whatsapp users who like to watch videos.

The latest update to the popular messaging app will make viewing videos easier than ever before.

Facebook owned Whatsapp, which boasts over one billion users started rolling out the update to some users on Friday.

The update adds a video streaming feature, meaning users can start watching any videos that appear in chats with friends before the file has even finished downloading.

Previously users were forced to wait until the video had fully downloaded before being able to watch it.

The update puts Whatsapp on a par with YouTube and other services, which allow users to start watching videos before the download is complete.

The update seems to be only available to Android users initially, with iOS and Windows phone users expected to receive the new feature within the coming weeks.

This is the latest in a number of updates Whatsapp has been rolling out to users of late.

Last week, it was announced that Android, iOS and Windows phone users can now use Whatsapp to make video calls.

The company has also revealed that it is boosting security for users with the introduction of two step verification, which will help to make the service much more secure.
