One of the features that made me join Telegram so many years ago was sending bubbly video messages to my friends. In July 2023, all these years later, Mark has announced this exiting feature.

Zuckerberg took to his official facebook handle and shared a demonstration video along with a caption, “New for WhatsApp – we are adding the ability to instantly record and share a video message in your WhatsApp chats. It’s as easy as sending a quick voice message.”

As per a statement shared by the WhatsApp team, voice messages on WhatsApp changed the way people communicate by providing a quick and secure way to share your voice. Now one can record and share short personal videos directly in the chat.

Video messages are a real-time way to respond to chats with whatever you want to say and show in 60 seconds. Sending a video message is as simple as sending a voice message. Just tap to switch to video mode, and hold to record the video.

Users 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 secure.

As always, from the moment these features are announced, by the time they actually are available to all users, it might takes weeks.

Besides that, the messaging app recently rolled out the ability to add your account to multiple devices, including more than one smartphone at once.
