WhatsApp recently announced a new feature that allows users record and send videoclips up to 60 seconds long, directly from the active chat. The new video message feature will be similar to sending a voice message, but users will be able to record hands-free.
The company said the feature will be a “fun way to share moments with all the emotion that comes from video,” whether it’s wishing someone a happy birthday, laughing at a joke, or bringing good news. The new feature is a way for users to share more expressive non written messages with their contacts.
Will the new video messaging feature gain popularity among users? Will it help WhatsApp increase user adoption? Stay tuned to find out!
