WhatsApp, the widely popular messaging platform, is set to introduce a new feature that will allow iPhone users to send short video messages to other users. This new feature is a welcome addition to the existing communication options that WhatsApp offers, which already include the ability to send pictures, and videos, and make calls.
With the introduction of this new feature, iPhone users will be able to record and send short video messages to their contacts. This is a great way to express oneself more vividly and with more clarity, as compared to text messages or voice calls. The feature is also expected to be user-friendly and easy to navigate, making it accessible to all users, regardless of their technical expertise.
The new feature is expected to work seamlessly with WhatsApp’s existing infrastructure, allowing users to send video messages without any delay or interruption. It is also expected to be secure, with end-to-end encryption protecting the privacy of users and ensuring that their messages cannot be intercepted or hacked.
A few hours ago, WhatsApp has submitted a new update via the TestFlight beta program, which takes the version number up to 188.8.131.52. This new version, which is also marked as version 184.108.40.206 in WhatsApp’s settings, has been made available to users who have enrolled in the TestFlight beta program, with the TestFlight build being 23.6.0 (458666918).
By releasing updates through the TestFlight beta program, WhatsApp is able to gather feedback from users before rolling out the updates to the wider public, ensuring that any issues are ironed out before the update is made available to everyone.
According to WABetaInfo, a website known for uncovering hidden features in beta versions of WhatsApp, a new option to send short video messages has been discovered in a beta version of WhatsApp for iPhone. Although this feature is not yet available to users, even those with the beta version installed, it suggests that WhatsApp is actively working on it.
WABetaInfo has revealed that this feature will function similar to Telegram’s short video messages. Sending a video message on WhatsApp will be as simple as sending an audio message – users can tap and hold a button to record a video of up to 60 seconds. Once sent, the video will appear in a circular format in the chat and will play automatically. Additionally, these short video messages are end-to-end encrypted, ensuring the privacy of users, and cannot be saved or forwarded, although screenshots will still be allowed.
This new feature is expected to provide users with a new way to express themselves, especially when they need to quickly show something important with the camera. However, it remains unclear when WhatsApp plans to make this feature available to everyone. With this new feature, WhatsApp continues to demonstrate its commitment to innovation and providing its users with a diverse range of communication options.
WhatsApp recently made an announcement about new features designed to improve the group chat experience on its platform. With the latest update, the popular instant messaging app is now offering admins more control by allowing them to decide who can join a group. This is a significant development, as it gives group admins more power to manage the membership of their groups and ensure they remain secure and exclusive.
Moreover, WhatsApp has made it easier for users to check which groups they have in common with their contacts. This feature provides users with a quick and easy way to see which groups they share with their contacts, facilitating communication and collaboration within the app. This is particularly useful for users who are members of multiple groups, as it allows them to keep track of their conversations and interactions more effectively.
