A new version of its app for beta testers has been launched by WhatsApp. WhatsApp has enhanced multiple features in the last few builds, however, the latest version allows us to have a look at an all-new feature
According to the report, the new feature that was spotted will allow users to mute videos before sending them further. This feature is similar to what can be found on a few other social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter.
It is expected that the new feature will work on both videos recorded on the sender’s device or videos that are being forwarded. The website shared a screenshot of the new feature which showcases the tab where a user edits the length of the clip that he/she plans on sending. Below the timeline of the video, an audio icon has been added that is expected to toggle the video sound on or off.
Lately, WhatsApp launched the highly awaited ‘Disappearing Messages’ feature. As the name suggests, the feature allows user to send messages that will appear for a limited period of time. The company has introduced a time limit of seven days before the message gets automatically deleted.
The feature is available for individual as well as group chats. However, in group chats, the group admins will be able to enable disappearing messages in group chats.
The Disappearing Messages feature will be available on all WhatsApp-supported devices including Android, iOS, and Linux-based KaiOS devices, along with WhatsApp Web and Desktop platforms.
