WhatsApp is currently one of the most popular messaging platforms in the world, offering users multiple ways to communicate beyond just text. With features like picture and video sharing, voice and video calls, and more, WhatsApp has become a staple for many users looking to stay connected with friends and family around the globe.
However, WhatsApp is not one to rest on its laurels and is now reportedly working on a new feature that will allow iPhone users to send short video messages to one another. According to a recent report by WABetaInfo, the feature was found hidden in a beta version of WhatsApp for iPhone, though it is not yet available to users, suggesting that WhatsApp is still working on it.
If and when the feature is released, it will work similarly to Telegram’s short video messages. Sending video messages on WhatsApp will be as easy as sending audio messages. Users will simply need to tap and hold a button to record a video of up to 60 seconds. Once the video is sent, it will be displayed in the chat in a circular format and will play automatically.
Perhaps one of the most interesting details about this new feature is that these short video messages are end-to-end encrypted, meaning they cannot be saved or forwarded by other users. However, screenshots are allowed, so users should still be cautious about the content of the videos they send.

The addition of this feature is likely to be well received by users, as it will allow them to better express themselves, especially when they want to quickly show something important with the camera. Unfortunately, it is unclear when WhatsApp plans to make short video messages available to everyone. Nonetheless, it is clear that the popular messaging platform is constantly working to improve its user experience and stay ahead of the competition.
