WhatsApp continues to enhance its messaging platform to attract more users. Hence, it is releasing regular updates. Soon, it will introduce a new way to record and send video notes. The process is more intuitive and accessible for users. 

What is the New Feature All About? 

The current version of WhatsApp for Android allows users to record and send a video. But they can do so by long pressing the camera button, which is found at the bottom-right corner of the screen. This method is functional. Unfortunately, it is the only way to create notes. 

With the upcoming update, users can use an alternative method to enhance usability. 

It is still in the beta version for Android. According to WABetaInfo, the platform introduces a new Video note mode in the camera interface. Thus, if users click on the camera button in a chat, they will see this mode along with the existing Photo and Video modes. 

The addition will make video notes more discoverable and user-friendly. More users will want to use this function. 

Enhanced Usability 

The new feature is said to simplify the process of recording and sending video notes. When it becomes available, you no longer have to long-press the camera button. Instead, you can just choose the Video note mode directly. Indeed, it has become more accessible. 

WhatsApp changes it to address previous user confusion. It also aims to provide them with a more streamlined experience. 

Beta Testers on Android 

It is important to note that this feature is not yet available for all users. Currently, only beta testers can use it. However, it is expected to be available to more users in the coming months. 

The platform has a long history of gradually releasing new features. Thus, we can expect that the stable version will soon be included in the update. 

Existing Features and Improvements 

The existing video note functionality enables users to record and send video notes by holding the camera button, which is situated next to the text field in a chat. 

But users can switch between front and back cameras. They can also utilize a hands-free mode. To do so, they have to lock the camera button during recording. 

How do you know if the video note has been played? Easy. You can access the Info option to check if your recipients have played it. 

But as you can see, the older method involves more steps. Hence, with the introduction of the new camera mode, it simplifies the process. It also helps the feature gain more visibility. It will truly encourage users to discover and utilize video notes. 

What Other Features to Expect

The platform is continuously working on new features to boost user experience. Another feature to look forward to is the ability to make personalized stickers with the use of your own images. This is possible through the AI image generator that Meta has developed. This feature will enable you to upload photos for analysis and generate customized stickers for use in chats.
