WhatsApp Launches Video Messages to the Delight of Users
FLORIDA, UNITED STATES.- WhatsApp has finally answered the prayers of its users by unveiling one of its most eagerly awaited features: video messages. Although currently available only in the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS and Android, it is expected that the company will soon introduce this feature in the stable version of the popular messaging application, much to the delight of its vast user community.
This news comes as no surprise as WhatsApp has built a reputation for swiftly rolling out new features such as the edit button, hiding online presence, and blocking chat. Therefore, it can be anticipated that soon this highly anticipated new functionality will be available for all users of the stable version of the application.
As of now, the video messages feature can be found in the latest available version, WhatsApp beta 184.108.40.206 for iOS and version 220.127.116.11 for Android.
Sending video messages on WhatsApp is as easy as pie, very similar to sending audio messages. The microphone icon is simply replaced by the video icon within each chat, giving users the ability to effortlessly send audio or video messages to their contacts.
What is the process?
1. Open WhatsApp and select a chat.
2. Tap the microphone or video camera icon located to the right of the typing bar.
3. Record the desired video and simply send it to the recipient.
According to reliable sources at WaBetaInfo, video messages sent on WhatsApp will be protected with end-to-end encryption, ensuring users’ privacy. Furthermore, WhatsApp will disable the option to forward video messages within the platform. It’s important to note, however, that users may still save the videos through screen recording if they wish to do so.
Although the details about the maximum length of video messages and the availability of editing features remain undisclosed at this time, the app is expected to offer basic trimming, pausing, and other editing options to enhance the overall user experience.
