WhatsApp video: you can now create and send video messages!

In the latest version of WhatsApp, you can now record and send quick video messages in addition to voice messages. That is very easy. We explain exactly how it works!

WhatsApp video: create and send video messages

It’s a feature that we’ve been expecting for a while and that’s actually available now: WhatsApp video. The feature was rolled out incrementally, so you may have had it before. But at least now WhatsApp video is available to everyone.

It works basically the same as recording and sending a voice message, but with video. Your videos can be up to 60 seconds long and you can easily record them without having to open the camera app first.

WhatsApp video: you can now create and send video messages!

Before you can try out the new WhatsApp video feature, you must first make sure that you have installed the latest version of WhatsApp. So go to the App Store to check it out.

This is how you make video messages in WhatsApp

To create and send a WhatsApp video, open a chat and tap the microphone at the bottom right. The microphone turns into a video camera. Now hold that button to start filming. There will be a short countdown so you have time to properly place your face in the frame. Swipe the button up to leave filming on, or hold the button as long as needed. Finally, you send the video.

The WhatsApp video is displayed as a circle at the recipient, just like during the recording of the videos. When the recipient taps it, the image expands, the sound is activated, and the remaining time is displayed on the edge. Very simple and user-friendly. Try it yourself!
