Voice messages on WhatsApp have revolutionized the way people communicate by offering a fast and safe way to share your voice. WhatsApp today announced a new feature that builds on this functionality: instant video messages. Now you can record and send short personal videos right in the chat.
Video messages are a live way to reply to chats with whatever you want to express and show in 60 seconds. This will be a fun way to share moments with all the emotion that video conveys.
To send an instant video message, just tap to switch to video mode, and hold to record the video. You can also swipe up to lock and record the video. Videos will play automatically without sound when opened in a chat, and tapping on the video will turn on the sound.
Video messages have started rolling out and will be available to everyone in the next few weeks.
