Got the scoop
Now you can shoot and share snazzy personal videos right in your chats! These instant video messages are the talk of the town, allowing you to strut your stuff for up to 60 glorious seconds. And don't worry, it is safe – they're protected with that top-notch end-to-end encryption

Movie studio in your pocket

Think about it: no more boring texts describing an action scene or a scene from a game when you can shoot and share a video of yourself reacting, emoting, and just being you. Send out a birthday shoutout, crack up at a friend’s joke, or beam with joy over some fantastic news — it’s like being there in person, minus the jet lag!

It’s easy too. Just tap the microphone option on a chat window, switch to video mode, and hold that button to record your short video. Want to go hands-free? Just swipe up to lock and let the camera roll — it’s like your own little movie studio in your pocket!

Switching: Mic to Camera
Navigating this is a breeze. Just give that microphone button a tap, situated at the bottom right of your screen, and like magic, it morphs into the camera icon

Ultimate communication tool

Worried about making a silent debut? Don’t be! These video gems autoplay on mute, but with one tap, you’re blasting off with sound and making sure everyone hears you.

And let’s not forget the security; WhatsApp’s got your back with end-to-end encryption, ensuring your creations stay for your eyes only.

This isn’t just a video revolution; it’s a voice note-video mash-up that brings the best of both worlds, blending voice notes and videos to create the ultimate communication tool.
