Meta Announced A New Video Message Feature For WhatsApp Users

WhatsApp has come up with a new feature that allows users to send and receive short 60-second video messages. Instead of attaching video files as videos, you can send video messages that can be instantly recorded and shared.

These new instant video messages are similar to the existing voice messages. Instead of a voice, videos will be the carrier of messages. Every WhatsApp user will be able to access this new feature.

To use this new video feature in conversation, you need to open your WhatsApp app first, then go to the chat or group where you want to send the video message.

In the bottom right, you will see the microphone button which is used for sending voice messages. Just tap to switch to video mode.

To record the video, you need to hold the button. Alternatively, swipe up to lock and record the video hands-free. Once you are done, leave the button and the video will be sent.

The sent videos will play automatically on mute when opened in a chat. To hear the sound, people will have to tap on it. Meta promises that video messages are protected with end-to-end encryption to keep your messages secure.


WhatsApp is a freeware and cross-platform service owned by United States tech conglomerate Meta Platforms. WhatsApp allows users to send text, voice messages, and video messages, make video calls and share images, documents, user locations, and other content.

The WhatsApp application runs on mobile devices and can be accessed from computers. The service requires a cellular mobile telephone number to sign up. The service was created by WhatsApp Inc. of Mountain View, California, which was acquired by Facebook in February 2014.

It became the world’s most popular messaging application by 2015. By 2016, it has become the primary messaging app in regions including Latin America, the Indian subcontinent, and a major portion of Europe and Africa. By 2020, WhatsApp will have more than 2 billion users worldwide.
