WhatsApp is working on a feature where users can share short videos of up to 60 seconds as a message.
Now these features are available to some beta testers and in the coming days, these features will be rolled out to all users.
WhatsApp beta for iOS 18.104.22.168 update and WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124 update introduce these video messages features under development.
With these features, users can communicate in a new way.
A report shared by WAbetainfo, “After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 126.96.36.199 update available from the TestFlight app and the WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update from the Google Play Store, we discovered that WhatsApp is rolling out the ability to record and send video messages to some lucky beta testers!”.
How to check if video messages features are available to you or not
Tap on the microphone button within the chat bar in any conversation.
If it turns into a video camera button, then you can already record video messages starting today.
You have to tap and hold to record the video. And after completing the recording tap on it to enlarge the video and see a preview.
Also, remember that your recipient should update their version of WhatsApp so they can receive your video messages.
Because a video message is recorded and sent in real-time, it provides a sense of immediacy compared to a pre-recorded video that can be saved to send later.
When recipients receive a video message, they understand that it was recently recorded, which significantly increases its authenticity.
Also, the video messages are end-to-end encrypted and nobody outside the conversation even WhatsApp can not access it.
This feature is now available to some lucky beta testers. And in the coming weeks it may be available to more people.
