Last week, WhatsApp rolled out three new features and now, the Facebook-owned company is planning to add two more. The messaging service is working on a new feature called mute videos. As the name suggests, the messaging app will let you mute videos before sending them to any contact or adding it to status updates. Wabetainfo has shared a screenshot of the feature, which shows that the mute option will be visible when you select a video.
If you tap on the mute video option, then the receiver will get the video without audio. This could be useful as sometimes you record a video and doesn’t want the receiver to listen to unnecessary background sound. To cut background noise or voices, you often need to rely on an editing app, which takes extra efforts. If your smartphone gallery has the option to remove the audio, then that is great.
The mute video feature might seem like a tiny addition, but a lot of people will appreciate WhatsApp for offering it. The cited source says that this option will first be rolled out to Android users. WhatsApp is expected to release this feature very soon via an update.
