WhatsApp, the popular messaging app, is reportedly working on a new feature allowing users to send short video messages that disappear after they are viewed. The WhatsApp’s new features, which is still in development, is similar to Snapchat’s “Snaps,” which are short videos that can only be viewed once by the recipient.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp updates, the new video messaging feature will be available in the app’s next beta update. The feature will work similarly to how voice messages work in WhatsApp. To send a video message, users will tap the microphone button in the chat bar and then hold down the button to record a video. The video can be up to 60 seconds long. Once the video is recorded, it will be sent to the recipient’s chat. The recipient can view the video once, after which it will disappear.

The new video messaging feature allows WhatsApp to compete with other messaging apps, such as Snapchat and Instagram, which have had similar features for years. It is also a way for WhatsApp to keep users engaged with the app. Video messages are a more personal and engaging way to communicate than text messages, and they can be used to share more information than a simple photo or text message.
The new video messaging feature will be released to all WhatsApp users in the coming weeks.
Here are some of the benefits of WhatsApp new features:
- More personal and engaging communication: Video messages are more personal and engaging than text messages. They can be used to share more information than a simple photo or text message, and they can help to build stronger relationships with friends and family.
- More convenient: Video messages can be sent quickly and easily without opening a separate app or website. This makes them ideal for sending quick updates or sharing funny or interesting videos.
- More secure: WhatsApp messages are end-to-end encrypted, meaning only the sender and recipient can see them. This ensures your messages are safe and secure, even if a third party intercepts them.
If you want a more personal, engaging, and secure way to communicate with friends and family, then WhatsApp’s new video messaging feature is a great option.
