WhatsApp has added another connection option with video messages. It is just like voice messages. It enables you to insert video clips into your WhatsApp chats.
WhatsApp video messages get displayed in circles within the app. It provides another way to share direct responses in-stream.
WhatsApp says that Video messages are a real-time way to respond to chats with whatever you want to say and show in 60 seconds.
They also think these will be a fun way to share moments with all the emotion from a video, whether it is wishing someone a happy birthday, laughing at a joke, or bringing good news.
It will bring WhatsApp more in line with other social and messaging platforms in facilitating video connection. It has already become the preferable interactive option in most apps.
You will tap on the screen to switch to video mode to record a video message, then hold to record the video.
You can also swipe up to lock and record the video hands-free. Videos will play automatically on mute when opened in a chat, and tapping on the video will start the sound.
Video messages are protected with end-to-end encryption to keep your messages safe and secure. So you don’t have to worry about anything.
They could also start clogging up your camera roll if you have enabled downloads. But aside from that, this option provides another new way to enhance connection in the app. It could have a range of uses.
And brand accounts may also be able to utilize the feature. You can send product examples, explainers, previews, and more with short videos. It could be another way to provide customer service in the app.
