Whatsapp users have been waiting for this announced update for a long time: From now on, the first users can create and send short video messages directly in the app. These videos can be up to 60 seconds long and are presented in a circular shape to the recipient. The video messages can be recorded directly within the messenger and then sent.
Voice messages on WhatsApp changed the way people communicate by providing a quick and secure way to share your voice. “We’re excited to build on this feature with new instant video messages” said Mark Zuckerberg. Now you can record and share short personal videos directly in the chat.
Video messages are a real-time way to respond to chats with whatever you want to say and show 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.
Easy to use: How to create video messages on WhatsApp.?
Recording a video message couldn’t be simpler: just press and hold the microphone icon in the chat. As with voice messages, the user can view their video before sending it and edit it if necessary. An interesting detail is how the video messages are displayed to the recipient: video messages are displayed in a round shape. Therefore, users should film themselves as centrally as possible in order to achieve the best possible result. The progress bar around the video shows the length of the video.
Video messages soon be available for all users
The good news for all WhatsApp users is that the feature is already available in the current beta version for Android and is expected to appear in the final version soon.iOS users will have to wait a little longer, but it’s only a matter of time before they can also take advantage of the new features.
