As of today, WhatsApp has updated itself with an exciting feature that can change its use. Users can now send Video Messages that are end-to-end encrypted. However, this is not the first time WhatsApp has made unique additions to the messaging app. Meta (the parent company) encouraged it to do so. WhatsApp Call Link is the most recent example of such a scenario.

To be specific, WhatsApp has many features that help users communicate better than previous attempts. Continuing with the flow, on July 27, the WhatsApp Blog revealed a new feature. With that feature, users can share video messages in the same manner as they share voice messages. Surprisingly, it was publicly announced, but people have yet to know. So let’s see it clearly.

What is WhatsApp Video Message, and how do I use it?

Continuing with its zeal to empower users, WhatsApp has again come out with a new video message update. Previously, WhatsApp had the feature of sharing instant voice messages. In the same way, yesterday, WhatsApp started rolling out the video message feature to everyone. With this feature, users can instantly record memorable moments with a video cap of 60 seconds, and the best thing is that such a video message is end-to-end encrypted.

The basic aim behind this feature is to provide users with a way to instantly share birthday wishes, jokes, or special moments with anyone. Even though the announcement was made publicly, people have the misconception that they have yet to receive this feature. For them, I notified you all that WhatsApp started rolling out this feature, and in the coming weeks, it will be available to everyone. After reading this, the following steps will help you understand how to use this feature.

NoteBefore that, note that the Video Message feature is presently limited to Android and iOS beta testers. But this update will soon come to every user, so don’t forget to Update the WhatsApp App from your respective app store.


  1. Open the WhatsApp App.
  2. Then Get into the Chat section and choose whom you want to share a video message with.
  3. Now look at the mic icon next to the text field and switch to video mode.
  4. Next, record the video; here, you can make it handheld, just as you do for a voice message.
  5. After that, tap on the Send button to proceed.
  6. That’s all. In this way, you can share video messages over WhatsApp.

Besides that, WhatsApp has more plans to execute and better communicate with it. I would like to see what else could be added. You already know that in the past, they introduced automatic silence calls from Unknown numbers, editing a message within 15 minutes of sending it, and many more features. From those past activities, we expect that WhatsApp will make more moves soon. So keep updated with us to get such a notification first.
