WhatsApp Introduces Instant Video Messages!

On 27 July 2023, WhatsApp announced that it is rolling out a new feature – Instant Video Messages!

WhatsApp envisions this as a way for people to share personal moments or events, like wishing someone happy birthday, or sharing good news with family and friends.

Think of Instant Video Messages as the video version of the Voice Message feature many people have been using for years to send short voice messages.

All WhatsApp Instant Video Messages are protected with end-to-end encryption to ensure that they can only be viewed by people you send them to.
