Just yesterday we reported on some forthcoming features in the popular messaging app WhatsApp. The new features, which include saving of videos to the device, were found in the private beta of the app. Soon after that article though, WhatsApp pushed out another update to version 2.11.322 and it now has the long coveted feature of attaching videos. We have verified that the new functionality is present.
The system for attaching videos is very basic. Users simply tap on the ‘Albums’ icon to browse their library of media, but instead of just photos, videos are now visible there as well. From that screen, users can just attach the video, which will then be auto-sent to the contact. It’s basic but it works and we imagine it will be refined a little over the next few betas. Limits for video size and length are currently not known.
WhatsApp for Windows Phone has been struggling to catch up to its brethren on iOS and Android. One of the big missing features was attaching pre-recorded videos. Previously, users could only shoot a video to be directly attached, but never pull up an old one. Another missing feature is the inability to send songs or pre-recorded audio, though presumably that may be next on the WhatsApp development team’s list.
WhatsApp currently has two versions: one public release and one private beta. The beta features, including video attachments, should be making their way to the public version in the near future, though no ETA is currently known.
