According to the reports, this ability will provide a new and interesting way of communicating with the users. This feature will be available in future updates of the app.

WhatsApp working on the new Ability to send video messages
As per the reports of the leading WhatsApp news source WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is developing a short video messages feature for iOS users. This upcoming WhatsApp feature will reportedly be different from the current long-format videos. You can record and send videos of up to 60 seconds as a message to your contacts.
The report further mentions that these video messages are totally safe and secure as the platform does not allow you to forward these video messages to other contacts or even save them. Notably, they will also be fully encrypted.
The independent portal has also shared a preview of this feature. In the image, you can see that the video messages will function just like the voice notes feature along with the ability to capture and share video content. This feature will reportedly be helpful in conveying emotions and expressions in a better way than voice and text messages.
It can be more beneficial to business users in demonstrating the use of new products. It is assumed that the video messages feature will be a very effective and powerful medium of communication.
As mentioned earlier the ability to send video messages is currently under development process so it is not available to beta testers. Once it is ready to be released you will know through a new post on our website.
The platform has submitted this update through the TestFlight beta program with this update the current version reaches to 22.214.171.124. Within WhatsApp settings, this feature is marked 126.96.36.199 and the TestFlight build of this feature is 23.6.0 (458666918).
