Meta launches a new video message feature on its WhatsApp platform. The company announced that the feature is now available globally. Meta spokesperson said this feature will change the way people communicate.
The new video messages feature allows WhatsApp users to send up to 60 seconds in length, and the video message will have end-to-end-encrypted instant video recordings. Meta hopes this new feature will be a fun way to share moments.
Users only need to tap the existing voice message button once to switch to video message mode and then hold the record video button to create an instant clip.
WhatsApp video messages will be played automatically when users open the chat. Users can then tap the video to watch it with the sound enabled.
Meta said this feature will be available in more countries as soon as possible. However, it will be available to all WhatsApp users in the coming weeks. And yes, that includes Samsung Galaxy smartphone users worldwide.
