WhatsApp Beta Testing Short Video Messages for iPhone Users

WhatsApp, one of the most popular messaging apps, is testing a new feature that will allow iPhone users to send short video messages to other users

WhatsApp, one of the most popular messaging apps, is testing a new feature that will allow iPhone users to send short video messages to other users. The feature was discovered by WABetaInfo in a beta version of WhatsApp for iPhone, and although it is not yet available to users, the discovery indicates that WhatsApp is working on it.

The feature is similar to Telegram’s short video messages and works by allowing users to tap and hold a button to record a video of up to 60 seconds. Once sent, the video appears in the chat in a circular format and plays automatically. The video messages are also end-to-end encrypted, meaning that they are secure and cannot be saved or forwarded. However, screenshots are allowed.

The new feature is expected to help users to better express themselves, particularly when they want to show something important with the camera quickly. It is unclear when WhatsApp plans to make short video messages available to everyone.


Earlier this week, WhatsApp announced New WhatsApp App for Windows PCs and new features that aim to enhance the group chat experience on its platform. The app now allows group admins to decide who can join a group, making it easier to control the membership. In addition, it is now simpler to check which groups users have in common with other contacts.

Furthermore, WhatsApp has introduced voice support for posting status updates, and has been working on a new Expiring Groups feature that enables specific groups to expire after a set period of time. The app has also been testing a new option to allow users to edit sent messages, which is similar to features found on other messaging apps such as Telegram and iMessage.

While the video messaging feature is still in development, it is clear that WhatsApp continues to innovate and add new features to its platform to keep up with its competitors. It will be interesting to see how this new feature is received by users once it becomes available.
