WhatsApp is making it easier for you to share what you’re up to with your friends! They’re introducing instant video messages, similar to Telegram, where you can respond in a chat with videos up to one minute long. No need to create a Story or a separate clip anymore.

All you have to do is tap and hold a button to start recording, and you can even swipe up to keep recording without holding the button. It’s a hands-off way to capture and share your moments quickly.

The videos will automatically play on mute, so you won’t startle anyone until you’re ready to turn on the sound with a simple tap. And you don’t have to worry about privacy because, like everything else on WhatsApp, these instant messages are end-to-end encrypted.

This new feature should be available to all users in the “coming weeks,” according to the company. While it might not replace Telegram or Snapchat for everyone, WhatsApp is still a dominant force in messaging, with a massive user base of over 2 billion active users.
