WhatsApp has launched a new toggle feature for its instant video messaging. This feature is available in the beta version for both Android and iOS. It lets users choose whether they want to use the instant video messaging or not. You can find this option in the app’s settings.
Even if you turn off this feature, you can still get video messages from others. This new update improves WhatsApp’s video messaging. Now, users can send short video messages that last up to 60 seconds. These messages are also fully encrypted for privacy.
According to WABetaInfo, this toggle feature is in the latest updates for WhatsApp beta on iOS and Android. When you turn it off, you can send voice messages instead. Some users have seen this feature turned off already. So, if you want to send video messages, you should check your settings. To try this new feature, you can download the latest WhatsApp beta version from the Google Play Store or TestFlight app.
Recently, WhatsApp added a feature to record and send short video messages. You’ll see a video recorder icon next to where you type your messages. By clicking on it, you can make and send videos that are up to 60 seconds long. These videos are encrypted and play without sound by default. If you want to hear the sound, just tap on the video.
WhatsApp also lets you send pictures or videos that you’ve already taken as part of your text messages.
