WhatsApp’s New Record Feature Lets You Record And Send Short Videos In Chats

By offering a rapid and secure way to share your voice, audio messaging on WhatsApp revolutionized how people communicate.

Now that WhatsApp has introduced instant ‘video messages’, you may record and share short personal videos directly in the chat. This has to be the most significant upgrade in July.

Following a Facebook announcement by CEO Mark Zuckerberg, video messages are now being made available to all WhatsApp users.

“New for WhatsApp — we’re adding the ability to instantly record and share a video message in your WhatsApp chats. It’s as easy as sending a quick voice message,” Zuckerberg wrote in his post.

Highlights of the New Instant Video Messages Feature

Real-time messages to chats can be made with video messages, which can be said and shown in 60 seconds.

“We think these will be a fun way to share moments with all the emotion that comes from video, whether it’s wishing someone a happy birthday, laughing at a joke, or bringing good news,” WhatsApp wrote in a blog post.

To record a video message, simply tap to switch to video mode, then hold to start recording. Swipe up to lock and record the video hands-free. When a video is opened in a conversation, it automatically plays on mute, and pressing it will turn on the sound.

End-to-end encryption is used to safeguard video transmissions to keep them secure. Additionally, the capability is accessible to iOS and Android users.

Recently, the business unveiled a technology that automatically mutes calls from unidentified numbers. Additionally, it allowed users to make changes to a message within 15 minutes of sending it. Additionally, it is reported that WhatsApp is working on usernames.

Will Cathcart, the head of WhatsApp said “We are adding instant video messages to WhatsApp. Voice messages are incredibly popular, and this builds on that: record and send a short video, all within a chat.”

In the upcoming weeks, everyone will have access to the capacity to make and share videos, which has already started rolling out.
