WhatsApp is publicly releasing the iOS version of its video messaging function
The Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is introducing a video messaging feature for iOS users on a broad scale. The company officially stated in its changelog on Monday that users can now easily record and send video messages within chats by tapping on the microphone icon and switching to video.
Additionally, WhatsApp is introducing support for screen sharing during video calls, with a new “screen share” button becoming visible when initiating a video call.
In the previous month, WhatsApp had already expanded its iOS capabilities by introducing landscape mode support for video calls and an option to silence unknown callers. To mute unknown callers, users can navigate to Settings > Privacy > Calls. Furthermore, WhatsApp had enabled the ability to natively transfer the complete account history when switching to a new device.
